Hunter Johnson

WILKES CENTRAL’S Hunter Johnson drives in a pair of runs with a single in the Eagles’ game against Hibriten earlier this season.

Editor’s note: Due to the COVID-19 concerns postponing the remainder of the high school sports spring seasons, the Wilkes Journal-Patriot reached out to coaches and athletic directors to have their senior spring sports athletes to fill out this form. We’ll be recognizing spring sports seniors throughout the rest of the school year and the summer.

School: Wilkes Central High School

Sports Played: Baseball

Future plans: To go to Wilkes Community College to begin going into criminal justice to become a state trooper.
