Johnson In Second Year In Pro Ranks

Former Rebel soccer player Danielle Johnson is in her second season playing professional soccer with the Sky Blue FC of Women’s Professional Soccer (WPS). The team is located in New Jersey and played all of its home matches at Rutgers University.

Johnson, a native of Baton Rouge, La., has played in four matches this year and her team is 3-5-4 this season with three if the team’s five losses coming by just one goal. Last year, Johnson made six starts for the team in her first season. She was taken by Sky Blue FC in the fourth round of the 2010 WPS Draft and was the 35th pick overall.

At Ole Miss, Johnson was a four-time All-SEC First Team honoree, and is the only player in Rebel history to accomplish that feat. She finished her career in 2009 and started 82 games during her career with the Rebels. Johnson recorded 11 goals and nine assists during her career at Ole Miss.
