Johnny Fenwick signed with FC Tulsa as a free agent on August 11 and quickly became a mainstay at center-back for the club. Fenwick would make 7 starts in 13 appearances down the stretch, earning a spot in the Starting XI for FC Tulsa’s Eastern Conference Quarterfinal against the Rowdies.
Fenwick signed with Las Vegas Lights prior to the 2020 season, but due to the travel ban caused by COVID-19, was unable to appear in a match for Las Vegas until July 26. He played every minute of Las Vegas’ final 15 matches, captaining the club in three matches.
On August 30, Fenwick scored his first professional goal in a 4-3 defeat to LA Galaxy II.

Fenwick earned award after award, including both Second-Team All-American and Third-Team All-American recognition before winning the 2018 Big South Defensive Player of the Year award and being named First-Team All-Conference in his senior year.
While in college, Fenwick also began his semi-professional playing career in USL League Two.
