Athlete of the Week

CHAD JOHNSON

A freshman forward on Gallaudet University’s men’s soccer team, Chad was named to the All-North Eastern Athletic Conference second team. He earned NEAC Offensive Player of the Week honors in September and ranks in several NCAA Division III stats: 21st in shots on goal per game (2.38), 28th in goals per game (0.88), 30th in points per game (2.0) and 37th in points. Chad ended the season second in the NEAC in points (32), goals (14) and shots (69). The former Palisades High star had four multi-goal games, including a hat trick versus Valley Forge to go with one assist for a career-best seven-point outing. He scored in nine of the 16 games he played in and led the Bison in every major offensive category. To nominate your favorite Palisadian for Athlete of the Week, email sports@palipost.com.
