Johnny would like to thank the great coaches that recruited him and offered opportunities to play for their fine programs; Coach Saban of the University of Alabama and Coach Meyer of the Ohio State University and Coach Jones of the University of Cincinnati.

In addition to playing the 2013 US Army All-American Game as a punter, he was the winner of both the 2012 Nick Saban Punting Competition and 2012 Chas Henry All American Kicking Camp Punting Competition.


Johnny Townsend played in the 2013 U.S. Army All-American Bowl and was the winner of the 2013 Felix "Doc" Blanchard Award. 

The U.S. Army understands the importance of academic excellence. With that being said, the Felix "Doc" Blanchard Award is given to a player from the East that exhibits his prowess in the classroom as well as on the field. As a fullback, Blanchard teamed up with halfback Glenn Davis to lead the U.S. Military Academy to three undefeated seasons during the 1940's. In 1945, Blanchard won the Heisman Trophy and the the Sullivan Award as the outstanding amatuer athlete of the year. "Doc" was elected to the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame in 1959.
