Falcons honor Johnson football coach

By DaShawn Brown - email

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - So far this season, the Johnson High football team has won four times as many games as they have for the past two seasons.

That turnaround has drawn the attention of the Atlanta Falcons, who named Atomsmashers head coach Jamie Baldwin, their coach of the week.

In his first season at the helm, Baldwin has led the Atomsmashers to a 4-2 record.  In the previous four seasons, Johnson was 6-35, including two consecutive seasons without a win.

The program will receive a $1000 grant from the NFL's Youth Football Fund, in conjunction with the award.
