A recipient must also be of high moral character and be in good standing at his college or university.
The only previous Colonials to be named to the team are Thomas Blankvoort (`02), Brian Carroll (`06) and Andrew Gallo (`06). Blankvoort earned the honor in 2001 and `02 while Carroll and Gallo were recognized in both 2005 and `06.

He was fourth on the squad with a 75.5 stroke average over 28.5 rounds. He twice shot season-low rounds of 70 in the Rehoboth Beach Invitational and at the Penn-Big 5 Classic. Johnson also was one of two golf representatives on GW's Student-Athlete Advisory Council (SAAC).

He tied for fourth place (of 77) at the Princeton Invitational and added three other Top-20 finishes this past season.
