St. Paul's grad Johnston buoying Lehigh's offense

January 27, 2012|By Edward Lee

With 69 goals and 79 points in three years, senior attackman Adam Johnston has been a consistent scoring threat for Lehigh.

Johnston, a Street native and St. Paul’s graduate, has scored 27 goals in each of his last two seasons since becoming a full-time starter, and Mountain Hawks coach Kevin Cassese said the team has relied on Johnston’s versatility.

“Adam’s been a four-year starter for us, he’s played a variety of roles,” Cassese said Wednesday during a conference call organized by the Patriot League. “He’s played some midfield, he’s played some attack, he’s been a regular for us on the extra-man units since his freshman year. He’s just a great kid. I’ve asked him every year to try and develop just one different aspect of his game because he’s truly a goal scorer, he’s a finisher, and he’s done that every year. He’s made himself more multiple, and I think we’ll certainly see that this year.”
