Staley said the Bolts believe Johnston is a home-run threat from anywhere on the field.
“He’s a weapon to score the ball any time that he touches it,” Staley said. “There are very few receivers in the game who are threats to score the ball whenever they have it.”

Another impressive element of Avila’s contribution is leadership. He was a respected presence within the Horned Frogs’ locker room during their memorable run to the college football national championship game and communicates extremely well on the field pre-snap.
