Tokay High Principal Erik Sandstrom didn't have to look very far to find a new athletic director.

Instead, he hired Tokay graduate, teacher and head football coach Louis Franklin. Franklin, who has served as the Tokay football coach the last three seasons, will replace Jeff Johnston, who is stepping down from the position and his teaching job at Tokay to serving as the new Lodi teachers' union president.

    Al da Long:Johnson has responded to every e-mail I've sent him. His responses made me feel more comfortable allowing my kid to play for Tokay.

    That is the best thing that could have happened, Johnston stepping down. It's par that he'll be a Union President- When he was A.D. at Tokay, he would never return a phone calls or emails to parents. This I write from first hand experiences.
