Got Game Minnesota

10/2/2008

Who's got game? Each month, ESPN RISE finds out. Here are the athletes we recognized in October:

STEPHEN JOHNSON MAHTOMEDI - FOOTBALL
Johnson's spectacular play last season helped
Mahtomedi advance to a state title game,
and this season the senior running back hopes
to accomplish the same feat. But this year,
he undoubtedly wants the result to be different.
The 6-foot, 185-pound Johnson rushed
for 2,134 yards and 18 touchdowns last season
and propelled the Zephyrs to the Class
AAAA final, where they fell to Totino-
Grace, 13-8.

ALLIE PHILLIPS MOUNDS VIEW - GIRLS' SOCCER
The Mustangs will be chasing their first state title in team history this
season, and Phillips is a big reason why. The senior entered the season
with 49 career goals but isn't exclusively a scorer. In fact, Phillips can
dominate a game from virtually anywhere on the field, which is one of
the biggest reasons why she has earned three All-Conference selections.
The Minnesota recruit also earned Class AA All-State honors last year.
