Cole Johnson’s main goal for his athletic career is to get a scholarship to play football in college, but if that doesn’t work out, he’s got a unique backup plan in place.

Johnson’s backup plan is boxing, a sport in which Johnson was recently introduced to but is already showing promise in.

“It first started off as a hobby, I never thought I was going to get into it and everybody was like ‘you’re really good at it,’ so I just went ahead and tried it,” Johnson said.
