An Evening Honoring Coach Johnson
Tonight I had the privilege of attending the Don Johnson Court dedication at Cypress College. During his 27 years at Cypress he won seven conference titles and a pair of state championships and was eventually inducted into the Orange County Sports Hall of Fame. He coached numerous successful players including future NBA stars Swen Nader and Mark Eaton. An All-American selection in 1952, he played at UCLA for legendary coach John Wooden. It has been about eight years since I met Coach Johnson at Biola where he is the one of the assistant coaches. Together with his wife Collette they have become dear friends.
