Johnson '16 Named Colorado Scholar-Athlete of the Year by National Football Foundation
Kyle Johnson '16

Bolles alumnus and recent Air Force Academy graduate Kyle Johnson '16 has been named the Colorado Scholar-Athlete of the Year by the National Football Foundation, Colorado Chapter. Johnson's selection highlights 14 Falcons named to the NFF academic all-Colorado teams.
Johnson graduated in April from the Academy and earned a commission as part of the inaugural class to the United States Space Force. His first assignment is to attend Harvard's Kennedy School to obtain a master's degree in public policy.  
Johnson graduated with a 3.93 grade point average with a major in business management. He was Air Force's Scholar-Athlete of the Year, the top academic honor a cadet-athlete can earn from the Academy. He ranked 14th in his graduation class and 10th in order of merit, which includes academics, athletics and military training.
He earned the Defender of the Nation Award earlier this season by the Charlotte Touchdown Club for excellence in academics and athletics. He was a second-team all-Mountain West selection and finished second on the team in total tackles with 82. He also had 5.5 tackles for loss and an interception return for a touchdown. Johnson earned the team's Brian Bullard Award, which is the highest honor a football player can receive and represents the player that is unselfish and gives 100 percent in every area.
