Calvin Johnson = All-American
Calvin Johnson has been named First Team All-American by several organizations, including Rivals.com (When do 52 receptions for 869 yards and six touchdowns make you an All-American? When you're the most dangerous weapon this side of Reggie Bush and everyone knows it.) and the American Football Coaches Association ([...] sophomore Johnson has been Georgia Tech’s biggest receiving threat this year with 52 catches for 869 yards and six touchdowns.)
In honor of his accomplishments this season, ramblinwreck.com has a new video up of just C.J and his catches this year (no spiderman from last year, unfortunately). You can watch it streaming from the original location HERE - a downloadable copy is available HERE.
I went to GT during Little Joe's prime, thus it's hard for me to say that Calvin is the best GT player I've ever seen, but he's closing in on that level. The man is absolutely uncoverable on the college level, and makes more circus catches than anyone I have ever seen. Hopefully he is able to build on this year and truly grow into his abilities next year (scary thought - he's going to get better), and that we are able to use him even more effectively than we have. In a couple of years, when he's a star in the NFL I'll still be watching videos like this one to remind myself of just how good he was at such a young age.
