Steve Johnson is one of America's top professional tennis players and is ranked No. 28 in the world right now. Before jumping to the pro ranks, he enjoyed a history-making college career at USC, winning four straight NCAA team titles with the Trojans from 2009-12. Johnson also captured a pair of NCAA singles in his junior and senior seasons and ended his career on a 72-match winning streak.

Here are eight things you may not know about the most decorated college tennis player ever:

1. There is a movie coming out about him... Maybe you did know this, but the short film comes out on Thursday, March 23, and it is going to be amazing. 

2. He got engaged to Kendall Bateman, a former USC volleyball player, in December.

3. Johnson was the top-ranked American for a brief period in August. John Isner held the spot for three years until Johnson took it from him.

4. He's a hockey fan… but more specifically a huge Anaheim Ducks fan.

5. He still needs to complete three classes at USC to earn his degree in human performance.

6. He was named Pac-12's Player of the Century...what a title.

7. Johnson's highest Junior ITF ranking was No. 660.

8. Words aren't needed for this one...We'll just leave these here:

Great person, great player, and a great story.
