Montemayor: BLHS senior Ben Johnson ends basketball season to focus on KU football commitment (UPDATED)
Ben Johnson played his final game as a member of the Basehor-Linwood boys basketball team on Tuesday against Tonganoxie. “I never really wanted to give up on my team or anything,” Johnson said. “I don’t think that’s how it’s going to be viewed. I just kind of thought it’s time I really needed to start getting ready for football after signing day, especially as I realized how big a deal KU is. That is my main commitment.”
