FAYETTEVILLE, NC - Fayetteville State junior free safety Michael Johnson
received another accolade for his football accomplishments on Monday.
The first-team All-CIAA selection was named to the Don Hansen Football Gazette All-Super Region One squad as a third-team defensive choice.
The Raleigh, NC, native recorded a team-high five interceptions for 39 return yards and 65 tackles this season. He also recorded a forced fumble for the 6-4 Broncos. Johnson ranks number one amongst the Broncos in solo and total tackles. His interceptions rank third best in the CIAA; while his 40 solo tackles are 12th.
The Don Hansen team carries out the legacy of long-time small college football advocate Don Hansen, who passed away at age 75 on Aug. 29, 2010. Hansen, from Brookfield, Ill., started and published Don Hansen's National Weekly Football Gazette for three decades, selecting NCAA Division II All-America teams for the first time in 1988. Don Hansen's Football Gazette began selecting Division II All-Region squads in 2003.
Super Region One is compiled of universities from four conferences including the PSAC, MEC, NE10 and the CIAA. A total of 40 teams and 130 players are represented on this team.
