Tallahassee, Fla. – Florida State redshirt sophomore Garrett Johnson (Tampa, Fla./Tampa Baptist Academy) is the subject of the upcoming episode of Seminole Sports Magazine Day In the Life Special. Johnson, who is returning from a medical redshirt season in which the 20-year old almost lost his life, is the top seed in this season’s NCAA Indoor Track and Field National Championship.
The show follows Johnson first at work, then practice and finally in class. The two-time ACC Champion spends almost 20 hours per week working in Governor Jeb Bush’s office as a legislative assistant. From there he grabs lunch and heads to the track for a few hours of practice and weight lifting. He ends the day in class or studying before waking up to do it all over again. Johnson also finds time for involvement in a number of student organizations including FSU’s Student-Athlete Advisory Council (SAAC) and the student booster association.
