Brandon Johnson 21 Hazelwood Central

Posted On: 03/21/21 1:01 PM

The Hazelwood Central Hawks have been arguably the St. Louis area’s top team through the first two weeks of the shortened spring season and several players to watch have emerged.

Here is a quick look at some of those prospects...

Class of 2021

Brandon Johnson Brandon Johnson 6'4" | OL Hazelwood Central | 2021 State MO , OL-DL, 6-4, 305

One of just four seniors listed on Central’s roster, it’s easy to pick out Johnson (pictured above) on the field because he literally stands out above most everyone else with his imposing size.

Johnson has experience inside at both guard and center and can clog the middle defensively. His play along the offensive line through the first two weeks has helped the Hawks rack up 410 yards rushing and score 73 points.

Class of 2022

Lionel Banks, RB, 5-5, 184

Banks has paced the Hawks' rushing attack the first two weeks, racking up 194 yards and two touchdowns on 25 carries, an average of 7.8 yards per attempt.

Banks is a shorter running back, but displays strength in his lower body that makes him difficult to knock off balance and bring down.

Armani Turner, WR, 5-8, 160
