Bearcats, Johnson run wild
MONROE — The Ruston Bearcats didn’t need to use the Wildcat offensive set Friday night against Wossman.
They just needed running back Ja’Ren Johnson to run wild.
And that’s exactly what the senior did, as he turned in a career game with 349 yards of total offense to lead Ruston to a 41-19 District 3-4A win over the Wildcats.
Ruston moved to 5-4 overall and 3-1 in district play while Wossman is now 5-4 and 2-2.
Johnson exploded to pick up 322 rushing yards and two scores on 35 carries — that’s 9.5 yards per rush — while adding two receptions for 23 yards.
