Central Building Mat Program

RED OAK -- Shon Johnson is off to a late start this season in his role as the Nash Central High School wrestling coach.
That's not necessarily a bad thing, though, as it means Johnson and some of his performers have been busy helping the Bulldogs make the Class 3-A State Football Playoffs.
Johnson is also an assistant football coach at NCHS in addition to his mat duties. And his wrestling lineup will feature plenty of footballers once an effective transition is made between the sports.
