Cal Poly senior wide receiver Dominique Johnson was named to the College Sporting News Preseason FCS All-American second team Tuesday.
Johnson caught 43 passes for 731 yards and six touchdowns last season after transferring from UCLA. He also broke the school record for touchdown receptions in a game after catching five against South Dakota.
Johnson was named to the College Football Performance Awards Football Championship Subdivision Preseason Watch List last month and was named to the preseason all-Great West Conference team by Phil Steele.
College Sporting News named Matt Szczur of Villanova the preseason offensive player of the year while Grambling’s Chris Anthony was named the preseason’s top defensive player.
Cal Poly, ranked No. 25 in the preseason FCS Coaches Poll, opens its season Sept. 4 at home against Humboldt State.
