Former Warren Central track star Chris Johnson has officially committed to join the track team at Alcorn State University.

Johnson, who signed with Meridian Community College after graduating from Warren Central in 2018, has not run on the collegiate level, yet. He suffered an injury last year that caused him to sit out the season.

He has received offers from Jackson State, Belhaven and Louisiana College, but after trying out for the Braves track team this year, Johnson was convinced that Alcorn was the place for him.

”I liked the coaching staff and how they were family oriented,” Johnson said.

Johnson has been running track since he was in 10th grade at Warren Central, and he is ready to get back into action this fall.

Johnson credits the people close to him over the years for his recent success.

”I would like to thank my family and past coaches for pushing me to be the best,” Johnson said.

This fall, Johnson will still have four year of eligibility left. He plans to major in business administration once he arrives at Alcorn State this fall.
