LSU Head Coach Sian Hudson on Nevaeh Johnson

“Nevaeh is a versatile player who could play anywhere in the midfield or backline for us. Her athleticism and competitiveness are traits that will help her make an immediate impact in the SEC. As a box to box midfielder, Nevaeh will not only play an important role in breaking up the opponent’s attack, but she is equally as dangerous in the opposing penalty area and will weigh in with assists and goals for the team. We look forward to adding Nevaeh to our roster this spring!”

Johnson played for the 2017-18 team that finished 16-8-3, 9-1 and went 3 deep in the playoffs. She played for the 2018-19 team that finished 15-10-1, 9-2-1 also going 3 deep. And, last year she helped the LadyKats as they finished at 17-3, 11-0. There were high hopes for that team in the playoffs but Covid-19 shut down schools and all extra-curricular activities, stopping all playoff action.
