A cinderella team is a team from a mid-major conference that upsets one or a couple of the top teams in the NCAA tournament. Every year a couple teams from these conferences come in and win a couple games that no one expected them to even be competitive. Usually, there are about two or three cinderella's each year.
At the start of every season, teams have to replace key guys at many positions along the field because members of previous year’s teams have graduated, and this is not any different for Johnson because many starters from last year’s team are now gone.
In the sixth year of school history, the Johnson football team played in the state semi-finals for the first time. Coming into the season with no playoff wins, no one expected the jags to make it past the first round of the playoffs,let alone make it to the final four in the state.
Whether it is because they moved away, have a family member on the team or they just like the colors, it is common to see fans of professional teams outside the state of texas.
Johnson football games are always a memorable experience for students and fans. And now that some new rules have been put in place, the experience can be more enjoyable and safer as well.
