Tony Johnson | Folsom / Lafayette

Now: The senior guard started 21 of the Leopards' first 22 games. He scored 13 points in their 78-57 win over rival Lehigh on Sunday. He's third on the team in scoring (11.7 points per game) and leads them in shooting percentage (.542), assists (104) and steals (44). He's a co-captain for the second consecutive season. Johnson was second-team All-Patriot League last season, even though back and foot injuries limited him to 12 games for the Easton, Pa., school.

Then: He was the Delta River League MVP and a first-team All-Metro selection in 2008-09. He helped the Bulldogs to their second consecutive Sac-Joaquin Section Division I championship. He averaged team highs in points (17.3), assists (3.8) and steals (2.9).
