Chiefland High School graduate and former Baltimore Ravens linebacker Jarrett Johnson signed with the San Diego Chargers on March 14.  

After a 10-year stint with the Ravens, Johnson heads over to San Diego as the newest member of one of the NFL’s top defensive units. 

Johnson, born in Cedar Key,  is one of the most successful former CHS football players. 

“He’s always been an overachiever,” said Jim O’Neal, Johnson’s high school coach. “He gives you that total package and always plays with intensity.”

Johnson was a star player for Chiefland’s 1997 state championship team, the school’s most recent state title team.

Johnson recorded 249 tackles and 57 sacks while playing for the Indians. After graduating from CHS, Johnson played football at the University of Alabama, choosing them over Ohio State and Florida State. He graduated from UA with the second-most sacks in school history and was a second-team All-American his senior year. He was also the first-ever two-time captain for the Crimson Tide.
