The senior wide receiver had 216 return yards, including a punt return and a kickoff return for a touchdown in Warren Easton’s 55-7 victory over Benton in the quarterfinals of the Class 4A playoffs. Johnson also caught six passes for 78 yards and rushed once for 14 yards. Johnson, a five-star recruit, has more than 1,000 receiving yards this season.

“We knew (Benton) had never seen anybody as fast as Tyron,” Easton coach Tony Hull said.

Warren Easton (11-2), a No. 5 seed, will host top-seeded Plaquemine at 7 p.m. Friday at 7 at Pan-Am Stadium.

The winner of that game advances to the state championship game in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome to play the winner of the Franklinton-Neville game.
