Lew Johnston has been a part of many national signing day programs during his coaching career. In all, Johnston – who has coached at Nansemond-Suffolk and Western Branch – said he’s seen nearly 40 players sign national letters of intent to major colleges. Today will be his final one when linebacker Cole Christiansen (Army) and running back Noah Giles (William & Mary) sign, while linebacker/fullback Daniel Griffith is headed to Virginia Tech as a recruited walk-on.

Johnston announced before the playoffs that he would retire after the 2015 season. The Saints honored him by winning the VISAA Division III championship – his first state title as a coach.
