Ty Johnson finishes rookie campaign on a high note

January 4th, 2020 by WCBC Radio

Ty Johnson, the former Fort Hill standout running back, had some ups and down during his rookie NFL season with the Detroit Lions- but saved his best for last.  Johnson, the rookie out of Maryland,  opened a few eyes Sunday in the teams finale- a 23-20 loss at home to Green Bay.  Johnson gained 65 yards on three carries, including a 40-yarder that set up a Lions  field goal. For the season he carried the ball 63 time sfor 273 yards- an impressive 4.3 yards per carry. The concensus coming out of the Lions coaching staff is that while Ty has a lot of improving to do to be part of the Lions' running back rotation going forward,  he showed some tantalizing ability on his runs last weekend.
