CANMORE, Alta. — Expectations are high around the Florida Gulf Coast Eagles in 2017-18, and for good reason.
This year’s edition of the Eagles have a plethora of weapons, all of which are capable of leading the offense on any given night. They possess the Atlantic Sun’s top back court rotation, in Brandon Goodwin, Christian Terrell, and Zach Johnson, and all three are capable of being the go-to guy on the back end.
On the first Saturday of the season, the Eagles opened up the 2017-18 season on their home court against the Illinois State Redbirds. In a game that saw several players put together impressive performances, one player stood out in particular.
Junior guard Zach Johnson wasted little time in making an impact, as he led the Eagles to the 98-87 victory, while leading all Florida Gulf Coast players in scoring on the day.
For his efforts across the opening weekend, Florida Gulf Coast guard Zach Johnson has been selected as the College Court Report Fan-Voted Player of the Week(end) by the fans!
Johnson received the most votes in our weekly Twitter poll, finishing ahead of Garrison Mathews (Lipscomb), Elijah Minnie (Eastern Michigan), and Jaelan Sanford (Toledo). Continue reading College Court Report Fan-Voted Player of the Week: Zach Johnson, Florida Gulf Coast Eagles
