Matt Johnson named top 10 FCS defensive back
The Sports Network, basically the best site on the internet for all things FCS related (sorry ESPN but you suck when it comes to REAL college football) has released their list of the top 10 defensive backs in the Football Championship Series.
They didn't rank the defensive backs, instead just listed the top 1o. And making the list is Eastern Washington University's very own Matt Johnson.
Here's what The Sports Network had to say about Johnson:
Matt Johnson, Eastern Washington, S, Sr., 6-2, 220 - With 15 career interceptions, Johnson will threaten the school record of 18. He's entering his fourth season as a starter, having earned All-Big Sky first-team and The Sports Network/Fathead.com FCS All-America third-team honors for the FCS champion Eagles last season. In 15 games, he totaled 105 tackles with five interceptions and eight other pass breakups, adding two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery. He is a physical presence who is instinctive.

Is it football season yet? I'm ready for the repeat!
