NLF Fall 2021 Rankings
Ranked No. 4 overall

If these rankings were based off of the player most college-ready player right now, Johnston would be as much of a lock to be the No. 1 as Brennan O’Neill, Andrew McAdorey and Joey Spallina were in the NLF rankings. To a man, every college coach and most club coaches asked about him for these rankings identified him as the one who could physically be ready to play in a college game right now.

Johnston is at another level athletically, and combined with a 6-1, 200-pound frame, he’s the total package at midfield. He plays good, hard defense, runs by guys with ease in transition and has change-of-direction and long-range shooting ability that make him a nightmare to cover.

Feature story

A legitimate two-way midfielder who makes an impact everywhere, Johnston carved out a starting spot for himself on a stacked Avon Old Farms lineup as a sophomore. He has prototypical midfield size at 6-1, 195, and he takes pride in his defense and is excellent in transition. Johnston scores lefty or righty and is tough to slow down when he puts his foot in the ground and gets going downhill.
