Again and again, coach Jeff Steele credits the Johnson boys basketball team’s success to a close-knit family dynamic. The Knights certainly looked the part Saturday night, complete with a big, happy postgame reunion at center court of the Frank J. Knight gymnasium. Ty Cockfield and Roderick English combined for 49 points, Andrew Sims and Laderius Odem each recorded a double-double, and the Knights hoisted their third consecutive Region 8-AAAA championship with an 81-69 victory over Buford at Johnson High.
