inducteeAthlete. Bellevue West (1991)
Being a wide receiver for the undefeated national champion Nebraska Cornhuskers in 1995 followed a dominating high school career for Clester Johnson, who stood out in three sports at Bellevue West. A two-time all-state quarterback whose team had a 20-7 record during his high school years, he established Class A standards in completion percentage in a season (636 in 1989) and in a career (.579). “He ran like the fullback, had the flair of an open-field runner and was able to take some pounding,” his high school coach, John Faiman said. His senior year in wrestling, he had an undefeated season spoiled by a 1-0 loss in the state final. In track and field, he won the all-class gold medals at the state track meet in the 110-meter high hurdles his senior year and the 300-meter intermediate hurdles his junior year.
