Fridley High School Senior Fadel Johnson was named one of the Star Tribune's Athletes of the Week for the week of May 6.

“Johnson's performances continue to take another leap. The senior recently won the triple jump in the Hamline Elite meet and owns the state's best distance in the event at 46 feet, 9 inches,” said Coach Justin Reese. "Fadel has been a huge asset to our team with his athletic performance and his calming presence. He leads by example through the effort he puts in at practice and his support of his teammates. He is one of the most humble athletes I've ever worked with."

Fadel missed the majority of his sophomore season due to an injury and came back stronger than ever his junior year, placing fourth in state for triple jump, and had one of the top marks in long jump in Class AA. He picked up right where he left off at the first meet of this season.
