Youngster primed for state titles
ISAAC Johnson has made a Darling Downs 12 years primary school side on his second attempt and can't wait for his debut game in Townsville.
The Warwick West State School student has played hockey for five years and competed in two under-13 state championships with Warwick.
Isaac said he really enjoyed goalkeeping in hockey but would play as an inside forward for the Darling Downs side.
"I am a wicketkeeper in cricket," he said.
Darling Downs will play in the primary school championships in Townsville on June 14-17
This season, he is playing his first year in Toowoomba hockey for the Red Lions club and played wing and centre forward for the Toowoomba team which lost both its division 1 games in the Coulter Shield at Buderim last Sunday.
He trains one and a half hours each Monday for Red Lions in Toowoomba and then two hours each Thursday with the Toowoomba U13 side.
On June 25-29, Isaac will play for the Toowoomba team in the Queensland U13 championships at Queens Park, Warwick.
Away from hockey, he had best performances of 38 with the bat, three wickets and some top efforts behind the stumps in Warwick U12 cricket in the 2011-2012 season.
