We asked area athletes five questions so you can get to know them a little better. Today’s guest is Northside freshman Griffin Johnson, who plays football, basketball and baseball.


  1. If you could make a new holiday, what would it be?

Griffin: Field Day at school, so we could have a free day to go outside and hang out with our friends.


  1. What pizza topping best represents you?

Griffin: Pineapple because it’s a happy topping, different and uplifting.


  1. How did you start rooting for your favorite athlete?

Griffin: I’m a Carolina Panthers fan, so I like Christian McCaffery. It looks like he follows his inner spirit as he competes. I also like Russell Westbrook because he plays in the NBA with passion and a fiery attitude.


  1. What is the first thing you will do when COVID-19 is over?

Griffin: I will go visit my grandparents, give them a big hug and hang out with them. I have missed them during COVID.


  1. What is your favorite sport beside the ones you play?

Griffin: Hockey. My family went to a Carolina Hurricanes game and it was great to watch in person. They made skating on ice look easy.
