That's So Tavid: Tavid Lee Johnson headlines the All-FTH Freshman Team

To say Tavid Lee Johnson entered his freshman year with high expectations would be an understatement. The Francis Parker guard netted multiple Division 1 offers before playing an official high school contest, the first San Diego prospect to do so since Mikey Williams in 2019.

And much like Williams, Johnson delivered on those expectations in a big way.

The 6-2 combo guard averaged 24 points per contest, good for fourth countywide, and also contributed 5.2 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game. He led his team to the Division 1 playoffs, where they nearly knocked off the eventual runners up, Scripps Ranch, in a first-round OT defeat. The Coastal League named Johnson to the all-league first team.

He can add another title to the list: Johnson is the Full-Time Hoops Freshman of the Year.

Here is the rest of the All-Freshman Team

1st Team

Richie Ramirez, 6-2 G, San Marcos

Ramirez started the season and couldn't miss. He finished the year averaging 13.4 points per game, shooting 50% from the field, 39% from deep, 3 rebounds and a team-leading 3.4 assists per game.

Tristan Anderson, 5-8 G, Olympian

The high-scoring guard was a blur for defenders to contain. Anderson averaged a team-high 16.5 points on a blistering 60 percent FG shooting, and a team-high 3.4 steals per contest. His 513 points set the Eagles single-season scoring record.

Lamar Smith, 6-4 F, San Diego

A starter for the Cavers from Day 1, Smith had an unsung freshman campaign, averaging 13 points, 7 rebounds, 2 assists and 1 block per game, and did it against Western League competition.

Anthony Etheridge, 6-5 W, Saint Augustine

A starter on an Open Division team, Etheridge didn't have the gaudy stats as some of his classmates (4.6 points, 3.3 rebounds per game), but he steadily improved throughout the year and gave the Saints a lengthy defender and high flyer in transition.

Justin Johnson, 6-5 W, El Camino

The wiry and hyper-athletic lefty showed flashes of brilliance in an up-and-down freshman year, averaging 6.1 points, 4 rebounds and 2 blocks per game.

Jerry Stokes, 5-8 PG, Bonita Vista

Speedy and poised, Stokes was a solid scoring option for the Barons, averaging 8 points and 2 assists per game for the D1 squad.

Second Team

Donovan Bryant, 5-8 G, Mater Dei Catholic - Averaged 5 points per game and was a catalyst for the Crusaders off the bench.

Kai Jones, 5-11 G, Francis Parker - Averaged 9 points per game as a full-time starter.

Jackson McCall, 6-5 F, San Marcos - Stat stuffer averaged 4 rebounds, 1 steal, 1 block and 2 assists as a strong glue guy.

Alejandro Gonzalez, 6-5 F, Escondido Charter - Averaged 11 points and 8 rebounds per game in the rugged Coastal League

Jasen Hughes, Jr., 6-4 F, Mount Miguel - Averaged 10.5 points and 6 rebounds per game for the D4 champion Matadors.

Riley Farrokhi, 6-2 G, Del Norte - Came on strong down the stretch for the Nighthawks, averaging 10 points per game during the final month of the season.

Paisios Polamolu, 5-10 PG, St. Augustine - Established himself as a key reserve and backup PG for the Saints, averaging 4.3 points and 2 assists.

Drew Parker, 6-5 W, St. Augustine - Reserve averaged 2.2 points and 1.2 rebounds per game for the Saints.

Enock Okito, 6-7 F/C, Mater Dei Catholic - Came on for the Crusaders down the stretch, averaging 3 points and 4.1 rebounds per game.

Dwight McDonald, 6-4 W, Christian - Rugged rebounder and defender started every game for the upstart Patriots.
