Sean Cartell of the SEC Digital Network posted an in-depth feature on the record-setting shortstop and current UK coach. Here's an excerpt:
Not only is Johnson a former Kentucky player and current assistant coach. She is the first and only All-American in program history and, in her first season in the coaching box, helped lead the Wildcats to their best-ever season with a 40-16 overall record and the school's first-ever NCAA Super Regional appearance.
Not only does Johnson play for Team USA, she also led the United States in batting average during the Pan Am Games - in which the US won the Gold - with a sizzling .706 clip. She was 12-of-17 at the plate in eight appearances with four doubles and eight RBI.
Not only is Johnson a student. She is pursuing her master's degree in sport leadership at which she excels at the highest level in the classroom and was an NFCA Academic All-American during her playing days.
Bottom line, Johnson just gets the job done.
