Johnson said, “Our coach worked with their coach whenever he was in college, and just to be able to go in the DI level and go with a teammate, that was a big deal to me.”

Edwards said, “Whatever I do, I make him better at. Whatever he does, he makes me better at. If he wins one race, then it makes me come back twice as hard to win the race that I’m doing. And that’s how it works both ways for us.”

“We’re just used to winning, so we’re going to go and try to do that at the next level.”

Johnson says he competes in pole vault, long jump, triple jump, the 400, and both hurdles.

Edwards does the 100 and 200, 300 hurdles, and the 4 by 1, 4 by 2, and 4 by 4 relays.
