Wingspan: What school did you choose?

Johnston: “Schreiner University.”

Wingspan: Why did you choose this school?

Johnston: “I really like the campus and the coaches and the team there, I felt like I just really fit in.”

Wingspan: What aspects appealed to you?

Johnston: “It’s a smaller school, and I would hate to go to a bigger school.”

Wingspan: What are you expecting from being a college athlete?

Johnston: “I’m expecting to have to put in a lot of work and I’m expecting to probably lose a lot my first year, but I’m still going to put in the work to hopefully do well.”

Wingspan: How long did it take to make this decision?

Johnston: “It took me a while because my parents always wanted me to go into music, and I always knew I didn’t want to. I always knew I wanted to do wrestling, but it took me a while to talk to my parents about it and actually make the choice to choose wrestling over music.”

Wingspan: What other options were you contemplating?

Johnston: “I was contemplating going into music, because that’s what my parents wanted. I was also contemplating other schools, like Lyon, but I chose Schreiner, ultimately.”

Wingspan: How do you plan to prepare?

Johnston: “I’m going to be conditioning, lifting, wrestling over the summer and just practicing a lot as much as I possibly can.”
