The latest collection to hit the Game Plan is the Calvin Johnson Sandy Creek Pack. This collection pays tribute to Megatron’s beloved Sandy Creek High School in Tyrone, GA. Johnson had a stellar career at Sandy Creek, leading his high school squad to a regional title for the first time ever in 2003 and gained national recognition as a top recruit.
