The Time Warner Cable Sports Channel Male Athlete of the Week for the week ending May 1 is baseball senior Thad Johnson.

Johnson had a day to remember on Saturday, April 30, sending the Bonnies to a dramatic victory in walk-off fashion by smacking a grand slam in the 12th inning for a 6-3 win over La Salle. The Bonnies were trailing, 3-2, when Johnson stepped to the plate with the bases loaded and one out, drilling a pitch over the wall in left to give Bona the win.

Not only did he deliver heroics at the plate, but Johnson also earned the win on the mound by pitching a season-high five innings of one-run ball with two strikeouts.

He also doubled in game one of the series and drove in a run in game two.
