Lions notes: Kerryon Johnson’s high school highlights are eye-popping

Detroit Lions running back Kerryon Johnson wowed Detroiters in his rookie season, putting up a phenomenal 5.4 yards per carry, which was good for second best in the entire NFL.

But it wasn’t just the numbers, it was how he got to those numbers. He was shifty. He had excellent vision. Hell, he even plowed over a defender or two.

For anyone who has known Kerryon since high school, none of this is a surprise. The 23-year-old running back has been doing this for years, and now there is visual proof of it.
