Last Look: Christ The King's Sean Johnson

Reporter Mike Sullivan takes a final look at the individual game of Sean Johnson, a talented basketball player who competed at a terrific program in Christ The King High School ...

Sean Johnson has always had that tough New York City mindset. Like all basketball players and athletes in every sport, it's not all glory and victories. It's how you react to the tough times that gives us a real measure of how terrific an athlete is.

Sean measures up quite well in these categories. Always willing to take the big shot in the toughest of situations, Johnson will hope to make an impact next at Duquesne, a school that recently has had some eye opening success in division one competition.

Sean, a 6-foot-2 guard from Christ The King High School in Middle Village, New York, has also played the forward position when needed for the Royals. He competed for a great basketball program that was tested on a weekly basis by solid teams from the New York area as well as on the national scene.

So, Johnson is battle tested on the high school level.

There was a lot of interest in Sean's skill level, especially late and in the spring. Besides Duquesne, Nebraska and Central Michigan were mentioned by Sean as being of interest.

Other schools like Manhattan, Quinnipiac, Northeastern, Iona, and Marist were programs that Sean said he was interested in before deciding to play at Duquesne.


Sean is a player who showed the ability to produce points in several spots on the floor. His perimeter game improved over the past year while his strength in finishing in traffic made him difficult to guard.

Johnson had a great experience playing inside Madison Square Garden at the Jordan Brand Classic last month. He scored 23 points, grabbed five rebounds and had two assists in helping the City team win, 129-120.

"I'm looking forward to playing in division one," he said. "I feel I can help my team in many ways. I'm just going to continue to work hard and try to earn playing time."
