Friday nights are a great place for big dreams in Texas.
For senior offensive lineman Jaeden Johnson, playing football after high school is his dream.
“It’s been what I’ve wanted to do, what I’ve focused on, what I’ve worked at,” said Johnson. “It’s been pretty much my life for a long time.”
Johnson is the team’s leader, giving the pregame speech each game.
“Some people are born leaders, and he’s one,” said coach Dennis Krantz.
However, football is not Johnson’s only dream.
Jaeden’s voice is one to listen to on the football field, and off the field — when he’s performing country music live at 2920 Roadhouse in Hockley.
“I bought my first guitar at a five and dime in Fredericksburg,” said Johnson. “It was all downhill from there.”
