Flomaton’s 3A Back Of The Year Da’Quan Johnson Commits To Troy

August 3, 2019

Flomaton High School senior Da’Quane Johnson announced Friday on social media that he has committed to the Troy Trojans as a safety.

Johnson led the Flomaton Hurricanes to the 3A station championship last season, playing mostly quarterback. He was named Alabama’s 3A Back of the Year.

“First, I would like to thank GOD for giving me the ability to play this sport! Without him I wouldn’t have the blessing I have now,” Johnson said in his announcement. “I also want to thank my head coach for helping me through this process and for being a great male figure in my life! From taking me to camps, making sure I’m accountable for anything I do, and for teaching me how to be a better man! Also a big thank you to all the coaches that believed in me to play at the next level, but at the end it comes down to One school that I feel like I can be the best I possibly can be and that is at Troy University.”

Last season for Flomaton, he completed 93-of-177 passes for 1,965 yards and 23 TDs. He rushed for 2,411 yards and 30 TDs on 304 carries, according to AL.com. In the championship game against Piedmont, Johnson carried the ball 43 times — a Super 7 record — and was named MVP. He also made 37 tackles on defense last season and had four interceptions.

Flomaton Coach Doug Vickery said Johnson picked Troy over South Alabama, Southern Miss, UAB, Tulane, Army, Florida Atlantic and others.
