Anthony Johnson eclipsed 70 career sacks this past year, making him the nation’s all-time leader in sacks across a four-year campaign. Johnson finished with 129 tackles and 79 sacks, 17.5 of which came during O.P. Walker’s run to the state semifinals, where they were stopped by fellow LSU commitment Terrance Magee and Franklinton High. It was just the third time the Broncos, who finished at 9-4, had reached the semifinals stage.
With the production came First-Team All-State honors, but it didn’t stop there. For the second year in a row, the Louisiana Sports Writers Association named Johnson as the Outstanding Defensive Player of the Year.
Magee, who lined up at quarterback at Franklinton but will play running back at LSU, was selected as the Outstanding Offensive Player of the Year. The 5-foot-10, 205-pounder finished the year on the Superdome’s turf holding up the state championship trophy, totaling 4,004 yards and 54 touchdowns as Franklinton went perfect against Louisiana competition, winners of 14 straight following a season-opening loss to Abilene (Texas). It was a taste of redemption for Magee and Co., who won 14-straight in 2009 only to fall short in the title game.
Magee, who passed for 2,634 yards and rushed for 1,370 yards, was also named the Outstanding Player of the Game in the overtime, state title win over Karr.
A third future Tiger, Lutcher wide receiver Jarvis Landry, was also selected to the First-Team. Landry, a four-star prospect who is ranked as the No. 7 wideout in the country, finished the regular season 589 yards and 11 touchdowns on 42 catches. As a defensive back the 5-foot-11, 180-pounder totaled 76 tackles, 54 of which were solo.
