Shen's Jake Johnson in SI's Faces in the Crowd

Shenendehowa sophomore swimming sensation Jake Johnson's year just keeps getting better.

Just two weeks after capturing two New York State Public High School Athletic Association swimming titles in the 50-yard and 100-yard freestyle races, the Plainsmen aquanaut will be featured in the March 19 issue of Sports Illustrated in it's "Faces in the Crowd" section.

The Shenendehowa swimmer also competed in the 2007 Pan-Am Maccabean Games in Argentina, winning 10 medals, including seven gold in the junior men's division.

Johnson will also be a part of a new multi-media agreement between SI and www.takkle.com, a social network for high school sports. Johnson was selected through votes, submitted on the Takkle.com website.

Fans can now log onto TAKKLE to nominate athletes for SI's Faces in the Crowd and a new Video Faces in the Crowd feature available at www.takkle.com/faces .
