MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. – While attending an Offense-Defense Football Camp this summer, Devin Johnson, age 12, of Prestonsburg, was named an Offense-Defense All-American and has been invited to participate in the 8th-annual Offense-Defense Bowl Week festivities taking place at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando, Fla..
Johnson, a middle linebacker/defensive lineman for Adams Middle School, was selected for the honor from a group of young athletes numbering in the thousands from across the country. He played well, representing Prestonsburg and winning defensive lineman of the week MVP, easily validating the Bowl Selection Committee’s choice in tabbing him for the All-Star tilt.
