Football: Crenshaw will look for big things from Mossi Johnson

June 20, 2012 |  6:26 pm

Mossi Johnson, a receiver-defensive back at Los Angeles Crenshaw, should be one of the best in the City Section this fall. He has a scholarship offer from Nevada-Las Vegas and displayed his importance to Crenshaw at a seven-on-seven competition on Wednesday at Loyola.

He has long arms, good hands and excellent speed. He's one of several skill-position players that the Cougars will be counting on to challenge Dorsey in the Coliseum League.

Max Lyons, a transfer from Dorsey, was effective at cornerback for the Cougars. Birdel Hodge, who also plays basketball, should be an imposing linebacker. The new quarterback is Ajene Harris, who led Animo South Los Angeles to the City small schools championship game last season. He'll be a junior.

Joshua Mendoza, the starting quarterback at Alhambra last season, made his debut for Garfield at the passing competition.

Compton Dominguez showed off a talented receiver in Sammy Shirley, who made an acrobatic one-handed touchdown catch.

Loyola's Cameron Walker, a cornerback, remains one of the best in the Southland.
