Southeast quarterback Braxton-Johnson headed for Georgetown

Southeast quarterback Myles Braxton-Johnson announced he will play for Georgetown University on Wednesday.

Braxton-Johnson will move to slot receiver for Georgetown, an FCS school (formerly I-AA), which plays football in the Patriot League along with Bucknell, Colgate, Fordham, Lafayette, Lehigh and Holy Cross.
The Hoyas were 5-6 overall and 2-3 in league play last season. The 2013 season includes two games against Ivy League teams. They will travel to Brown on September 21st and play host to Princeton on Sept 28th.

 “I am going there as an athlete, but I am going to play the slot,” Braxton-Johnson said. “It’s the best spot for me to get on the field and the coaches said they wanted a slot receiver who had experience playing quarterback. I think my background as a quarterback will help.”

 The 5-11, 185 pound Braxton-Johnson was born in Silver Springs, Maryland, which is less than an hour away from Georgetown and he has always been a fan of the Hoyas. He moved to Florida in the fourth grade.

A top level student with a 4.4 weighted GPA, Braxton-Johnson said he will major in pre-med and hopes to become a doctor. He said a combination of scholarships he has received will pay for his costs.

Braxton-Johnson has a lot of a good memories from his successful career at Southeast where he showed himself to be a cerebral quarterback who was not afraid to run the ball into heavy traffic. He started the past two years and was a backup as a sophomore.

“My fondest memory from Southeast is wining the district title last season at Palmetto. It was huge game for Southeast and for me,” he said.
