Player of the Week: CH Flowers’ Sean Johnson

After transferring to C.H. Flowers High School in Prince George’s County, Maryland, Sean Johnson sought out football coach Dameon Powell to convey his interest in being part of the Jaguars’ team.

“He said he was a quarterback and that’s where his heart was, but that he would play anything,” Powell said.

Other players have shared their similar interest, Powell said, but once he got a look at Johnson on the field, the coach knew he had a special player. And as Flowers continued its best season in school history, Johnson continued to lead the way.

Johnson completed five of eight passes for 83 yards and one touchdown, and rushed 22 times for 165 yards and another score this past Saturday as the Jaguars beat Wise, 20-13, in a Maryland 4A semifinal, advancing to their first-ever state championship game appearance.

For his efforts, Johnson was named the Military Bowl DC Touchdown Club High School Football Player of the Week.

C.H. Flowers quarterback Sean Johnson won this week’s Military Bowl DC Touchdown Club High School Football Player of the Week after another strong performance in the Jaguars’ 20-13 win over Wise in a Maryland 4A semifinal.

“The best thing about him is his leadership skills,” Powell said. “He puts everyone in the right place and knows what I like done. He’s taken our offense to a whole new level. He’s just a tough kid.”

Johnson previously attended Riverdale Baptist. He enrolled at Flowers two years ago and quickly earned the nod as the Jaguars’ starting quarterback. On Saturday, he did most of his work with his legs, throwing a six-yard touchdown pass and running for a 24-yard score.
