No-Huddle Series: SMU WR Darius Johnson

Run and Shoot coaching disciple June Jones has coached his share of star receivers both at the college and professional level. I've found that his frame of reference about the position is pretty good. If he praises a player’s potential, that receiver is worth watching. So when Jones shared in a weekly press conference this season that SMU receiver Darius Johnson might be the best receiver he’s ever coached, and possibly the best athlete, that raises the old antennae.

June Jones also said that Colt Brennan was the best QB he ever coached, a group that includes Jim Kelly and Warren Moon.

Yep, that's why I only mentioned wide receiver. His frame of reference has been better at that position.
