Cat is a really good dude, and a legend in his hometown of Joplin.  Always nice to see the former Titans getting their due!  :clap:

One of my all time favorite ORU starting fives to watch play: 

78-79 Cat Johnson, Calvin Garrett, Robert Griffin, Antonio Martin & Ricky Baskin.

They won their conference (MCC) but were on probation and couldn't go to the NCAA tourney.  They had the talent but we'll never know if they could've won a first round game or not...

Cat johson was fun to watch play basketball and had personality, too! I rememberour wing Fortress played the athletic dorm in intramural softball. Cat Johnson, Mark Acres, etc. were playing. They were such good athletes. Cat played shortstop and took away a couple of hits and threw out people from deep in the hole. It wasn't even fair!
