Johnny is a perennial crowd favorite with his explosive runs, deceptive quickness, and dedication to the team. Coming up through our feeder Union high school program and playing straight through college he has positioned himself as an experienced leader. He has been appointed Captain of the Hibernians and has led them through some good times and bad. Our version of the ‘pocket rocket’ continues to deliver on the field, and has even stepped out of his league with a smoking hot girlfriend off the field. Here’s to our token ‘get out of jail free’ card.
