Posted: November 8, 2014

Jonah Johnson – 3rd Year - #9 – Outside Hitter – Langley, BC  – Business Administration

Coming back to Briercrest with a new level of play, Johnson can be heard on the court daily with his energy, passion and commitment. This 6’2” outside hitter is a force on many levels; whether it is his quick defense aggressiveness or his monster tug from the service line, Johnson plays on another level. Not wanting to waste any opportunity, he continues to use his drive and passion to play his heart out every time he touches the floor.

Johnson’s passion touches further than just the volleyball court, as his peers and teammates witness his passion for success in relationships.

“Jonah continues to strive to create stronger relationships past the typical hello with so many people,” stated men’s volleyball assistant coach Cody Quiring. “It is awesome to see his investment into other people’s lives.”

While almost half way through his degree here at Briercrest, Johnson can reflect on his time here at Briercrest. His ultimate highlight was this past year in taking the silver medal at the CCAA National Championships, hosted by Briercrest in Moose Jaw, SK.

Following highlights of his time here include: learning many different topics and areas of interest from Professor Stephen Robitaille as well as his friendship and quality time with former roommate Mike Harrison.

Watch for Johnson to shake some heads of opponents this year as he continues to develop his game to be a force in the league.
