This week’s athlete of the week is Jakeem Johnson. Johnson, a freshman forward on the Long Island University Men’s soccer team, has been sensational for the Blackbirds during his short time in Brooklyn.

Last week, Johnson single-handedly wrecked Stony Brook, scoring two goals in LIU’s 2-1 victory. The first goal, scored in the 75th minute of the game, gave LIU a 1-0 lead. The second goal came in the 95th minute and delivered the overtime win to the Blackbirds.

Johnson is the team leader in goals scored with three, and his seven points rank fourth in the Northeast Conference.
