Grayson's Robert Nkemdiche and Central Gwinnett's Trey Johnson have been selected as U.S. Air Force Junior All-Americans in an announcement by MaxPreps.com. Both players were on the first-team defense and the 6-foot-5, 270-pound Nkemdiche was selected as the nation's top junior.

Nkemdiche helped the Rams to the state title last season, rushing for 17 touchdowns as a running back and making 18 sacks as a defensive lineman. Johnson, an Auburn commitment, made 164 tackles from his linebacker position.
