Montana State return specialist Shawn Johnson can once again call himself an All-American returner.

Johnson was named to The Sports Network’s 2014 preseason All-America second team on Tuesday. Johnson was named a preseason All-American punt returner last year and ended the year as an All-American returner.

Big Sky teams will shy away from kicking to Johnson after he returned two kickoffs for touchdowns and a punt for a touchdown last season. Johnson ranked 2nd in the Big Sky in kick return average with 31 yards per kickoff return, which also ranked 4th in the nation.

Johnson also rushed for 609 yards and 6 touchdowns on the Bobcats offense.
