Noah Christopher Johnson (b. April 28, 1998) is a physical offensive lineman who sat out the 2018 season, using his redshirt, after transferring from the community college ranks.

A three-year letter-winner under head coach Alan Schuckman at Bishop Carroll High School, the Golden Eagles went 34-3 with Johnson as a starter.

He earned 2015 first-team all-state honors from The Topeka Capital-Journal and The Wichita Eagle, while he was named to both publications’ Top 11 teams as one of the top prep players in the state of Kansas and also earned first-team all-state honors from both as a junior.

Johnson helped Bishop Carroll to average 45.8 points per game and total nearly 5,000 offensive yards during his senior year of 2015.

After graduation, he went on to play under head coach Tim Schaffner at Butler Community College and earn honorable mention all-conference accolades as a freshman in 2016, a year in which he played every offensive snap.

Johnson then earned first-team all-conference honors as a guard during his sophomore season of 2017, blocking for an offense that averaged 167.0 rushing yards with 22 touchdowns. He sat out the 2018 season, which leaves him with two years to play two.
