Max Johnson, an experienced southpaw, is set to fill in for Drake Maye at North Carolina. With 20 starts at LSU and Texas A&M, he has thrown for over 5,800 yards, 47 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions. Johnson delivers accurate, timely passes to all levels of the field, excelling in short to intermediate throws. His high football IQ and pedigree are evident in his ability to read defenses. He shows surprisingly nimble size at 6-foot-5 and who can make plays with his feet.

Johnson throws well on the move and makes good decisions under pressure, delivering strikes over the middle and taking hits when necessary. However, his average release time and inconsistent pocket presence can hinder his performance — he often drifts too deep or laterally, which complicates protection for the offensive line.

The quarterback position will be huge in terms of success for the Tar Heels this season, especially with Maye now gone. The winner of this quarterback battle won’t need to be as good as Maye, as that would be difficult to replicate but there will be pressure to lead this offense.

he Boston Celtics are NBA champions for a league record 18th time. Defeating the Dallas Mavericks in the NBA Finals, Boston secured their first title since 2008.

This was a very special title for Boston, not only because they snapped in extensive drought, but because they did it with a core so many people thought couldn’t reach this point. Continuing to build around Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown, Boston ignored the outside calls to break up that duo, and trusted the process. Brown won Finals MVP, but Tatum certainly could have won the award as well.

Boston had to eliminate a very tough Dallas Mavericks team that was led by superstar guard Luka Doncic. After the series concluded, an exchange between Brown and Doncic surfaced, with the two stars sharing a nice moment.
