Johnston will play football at Western New Mexico

   Spencer Johnston has signed a letter of intent to attend and play football at Western New Mexico University. The Bulldog senior tackle will leave for Silver City, N.M., in early August to participate in fall camp.

   Johnston, Offensive Lineman of the Year in 2009, earned several honors while playing for the Bulldogs. He earned first team honors on Valley League, CIF and North County teams.

   Johnston started playing football in the fifth grade as a running back and linebacker.

   “He is an exceptional athlete and has great feet,” said Ramona High’s head football coach Damon Baldwin. “His experience at other positions definitely helped him become an outstanding offensive lineman.”

   Johnston, a B student, plans to major in mathematics and education in anticipation of a career as a teacher and a coach.

   “My family has been very supportive since I started playing,” he said. “My mom and dad (Russ and Jan) have never missed a game. My brother and sister (Tim and Ashley) have also made it to most of my games.”

   The Johnstons have a motor home and plan on making the eight-hour drive to Silver City to watch Spencer’s college games.

   Western New Mexico is an NCAA Division II school. The Mustangs play in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference.
