Alliance High School's senior running back Duce Johnson set a Stark Country record this past season, rushing for 462 yards in one game. But the football field isn't the only place where Johnson has found success. Johnson has a 3.8 GPA. 

"I do a lot of lifting,every morning at 6am," Johnson explained. I just condition really hard and I stay on task and work hard every day.

Johnson added, "Just making my family, my coaches and teammates happy, seeing them happy and knowing I am doing well motivates me to keep doing it."

In addition to football, Johnson also wrestles and runs track.  He hopes to study business in college.
