One of my favorite things to do in the offseason is to find full games of Texas’ QB recruits from when they’re still in high school. The difference between watching highlights and a full game is a major one for any player, but at QB it’s a particularly big deal. It’s highly instructive to see how the team goes about moving the ball and the role the QB plays in making it happen, as well as what they do when things get tough. The best games to watch are the ones in which the QB’s team was seriously tested and perhaps even defeated, I found exactly that for Roschon Johnson.
Port Neches-Groves was 8-0 going into the Mid-County Madness rivalry game with Nederland this last season, while Nederland was 5-2. The district title was already locked up for PNG but pride was on the line. Johnson’s Indians ended up dropping the game 36-35 in a phenomenal contest that came down to the wire.
I saw a lot from Roschon in this game that I’ll dive into. He absolutely rose to the challenge of this game and did all that could be reasonably expected in trying to carry his team to victory and demonstrated a few different skills and capacities in the effort.
