Jonathan Johnson combined a great pitching arm with a love for competition that would eventually place him among the finest pitchers in the storied history of the Florida State baseball program.

Johnson signed with Florida State out of Forest High in Ocala, Florida, and made an immediate impact on the Seminole program. As a true freshman in 1993, Johnson was named ACC Rookie of the Year, placed in the top 10 in eight of 11 ACC pitching categories and culminated the year with a place on the Baseball America and Collegiate Baseball All-Freshman teams.

He followed his rookie campaign with a 12-1 record and 137 strikeouts as a sophomore earning second team All-ACC and third team All-America honors from Baseball America, Collegiate Baseball and the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association. He was selected to Team USA that summer and finished with a 6-3 record. He overcame a broken ankle in his third and final season at Florida State to finish with a 12-3 record, leading Florida State to the ACC Championship in 1995 and a berth in the College World Series. He was a finalist for the 1995 Golden Spikes Award and first team Baseball America and second team Collegiate Baseball All-American.

Johnson would win 34 games and lose only 5 at Florida State with a 2.63 ERA and 391 career strikeouts, which ranked fourth on the all-time ACC career list. He was selected by the Texas Rangers with the seventh overall pick of the 1995 draft. He went on to debut in the big leagues with the Rangers on 1998 and enjoyed a six-year professional career.
