Mitch Johnson, Lakeville North



The best movie I've seen in the last year? My favorite movie that I've seen in the last year probably has to be "The Dark Knight Rises." I love all the Batman movies, and it was my favorite one so far.

Three songs I never skip on my iPod are ... Pretty much any Eminem song that comes on I have to listen to.

Who do you like to follow the most on Twitter, and why? I wouldn't say that I have a favorite person that I follow, but I like to follow a lot of pro players and rap artists.

Three words or phrases my friends or teammates might use to describe me? Dedicated; relentless; leader.

What are your goals for the upcoming football season? My most important goal is to win state. I think that anything short of that will be a letdown for me, and the entire team. We have high expectations this year and expect to do well.

What are you working on in the offseason? I am working on getting bigger, faster and stronger. I am also trying to become a better student of the game.

At my first varsity practice, I felt ... pretty nervous because I was a sophomore playing with all older guys, but I think I got over it pretty quick.

What is your favorite meal before a game? I am kind of superstitious when it comes to pregame rituals, so I have half a Subway sandwich before every game.

What is the best sports advice you ever received? To be successful in a sport you have to do everything you possibly can to make yourself better. You have to want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you will be successful.
