H-F wrestler Johnson aims for a big finish to senior season

There’s only one way Deion Johnson sees himself smiling in February. 

“It’s my last season. I need to win a state title,” the Homewood-Flossmoor senior said. 

Johnson, who wrestles at 113 pounds for the Vikings, seems to be headed in the right direction to accomplish that goal. He boasted a 12-2 record as of Dec. 19. Both losses came at the prestigious Walsh Ironman tournament in Ohio, generally considered one of the top high school events in the country.
