Brian Johnson’s accomplishments at Schoolcraft High School are numerous. Brian graduated in 1986 and was in the top 10 of his class. He went on to excel academically at Western Michigan University. Brian received a U.S. Military Academy offer of admission which he declined and instead “walked on” to the WMU football team, earning a scholarship in his second season. Brian was named “one of the best football players” in the past 100 years at WMU. He was a member of the 1988 MAC WMU championship team.

Brian’s athletic accomplishments at SHS are far too numerous to detail, but a short list is: as a member of the varsity basketball team in his sophomore, junior and senior campaigns the Eagles won two SJV League championships, two District Championships and one Regional Championship before being ousted in the State Quarter Finals.

As a member of four varsity football campaigns, the Eagles won an SJV league championship, a District championship, a Regional championship in his senior campaign prior to losing in the State Semi-finals.

At Homecoming 1985, Brian scored the first touchdown at the new Roy H. Davis field. The first time the Eagles touched the football, Brian took the ball near midfield and ran for a TD at the north end of the field.

Brian is married to Amy and with their two kids they have settled in Vicksburg. He has coached Little League baseball, Shooting Stars Basketball, and Rocket Football. He is currently a volunteer coach for the Vicksburg varsity football team.
