WASKOM, TX (KSLA) -

Waskom junior running back, Junebug Johnson, is a large part of why the Wildcats are 13-0 and playing in the 2A DII quarterfinals Friday. Although he's short in stature, Junebug uses his unconventional frame to his advantage.

"Other teams can't see me so I just go right past them," said Johnson.

Given the name Junebug by his Aunt, the fast tailback missed most of last season due to injury. This year he has more than 1,300 yards rushing and 17 touchdowns. He has caught five touchdowns and thrown for three more.

"He never misses a rep in the weight room. He's going to give you everything he's got during practice and during games," said Whitney Keeling, Waskom head coach. "He's always going to be in the right place at the right time.

For Junebug that starts in the classroom.

"I always do my work and people follow me."
