An integral part of the Dayton Dynamo FC back line will be returning in 2017. The club announced on Monday that Christian Johnson has agreed to return for the upcoming NPSL season. The Dynamo did not take to the pitch last year without Johnson. The Hamilton, OH native appeared in every match.
Johnson started his collegiate soccer career with Cincinnati State, earning NJCAA Region XII second team and OCCAC All-Conference first team honors during his sophomore season. He then transferred to Northern Kentucky University, helping the Norse reach the Atlantic Sun Championships semifinals in his senior year.
With the addition of another defender, the Dynamo appear to be building its roster from the back.
