Johnson offered by regional college programs

Wrote a story this week on Mayfield quarterback Kavika Johnson, who's received offers to play college football from New Mexico State University, the University of New Mexico, the University of Texas-El Paso and Brigham Young University.

With Johnson as arguably New Mexico's top prep quarterback, expect the Trojans to be right there in the State Championship conversation once again in 2014. He's a big reason why, along with the Trojans having some of the top coaching in state, headlined by their head coach Michael Bradley.

Quarterback play and quality coaching. It's obviously a recipe for success, and I'd expect it to be a theme this season like many others. The same can be said at Las Cruces High (with quarterback Kameron Miller under center, and his father Jim Miller manning the sidelines) and Eldorado (with the combination of quarterback Zach Gentry and head coach Charlie Dotson).
