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.
Last year Johnson comfortably defeated the Harlingen Cardinals 36-0 on the road. This year the Jaguars defeated the Cardinals once again by the score of 35-23 after a summer of working hard and preparing for the upcoming season. The next game for Johnson was against the Brandeis Broncos, who defeated the Jaguars 30-13 in last year's matchup. This years team was looking for revenge, but fell short, losing 68-53.
