KS HS Player of the Week: Mitchell Johnson


Andy Urban
OK/MO/KS/AR & Creekside Scouting Supervisor

It was one of the most impressive week's for individual performers in the state with a handful of players deserving. This week we go with another arm out of Wichita as 2023 LHP Mitchell Johnson goes the distance in a 5 inning run rule shortened game for Derby, handing Maize just their second loss of the year. Johnson gave up only one hit while punching out 12 and allowing four walks. The Wichita State commit continues to get better and better for Derby.
