Benjamin RB Johnston commits to Washington & Lee 

By Jodie Wagner

Benjamin running back McKenna Johnston has committed to Washington & Lee (Va.) University, where the two-sport standout will play football and lacrosse.

Johnston, 6-foot-1 and 195 pounds, led the Buccaneers in rushing last season with 813 yards on 123 carries. He scored eight touchdowns.

The senior also is a four-year varsity lacrosse player who helped lead Benjamin to the 2011 state lacrosse championship.

He was actively recruited as a Division I lacrosse prospect as a sophomore before turning his attention to football.
