Three Jays named to Academic All-America Football Team

Fresh off one of the greatest seasons in school history, the 2011 Johns Hopkins football team continued to roll in honors last week as the Blue Jays had three players named to the 2011 CoSIDA/Capital One Division III Academic All-America Football Team.

Senior tackle Roland Massimino was named to the first team, while senior guard Doug Drummond and senior defensive end Kale Sweeney earned second team honors.

With three selections, Johns Hopkins is tied with Mt. Union for the second-most among all Division III schools, and JHU’s all-time total of Academic All-America football players has been raised to 15.

Johns Hopkins posted a 10-1 record, won the Centennial Conference title and advanced to the NCAA playoffs this season. The Blue Jays were ranked in the top 25 throughout the season and had a school-record 15-game winning streak before falling in the first round of the NCAA playoffs. The Centennial Conference title was the third straight and seventh in the last 10 years for Johns Hopkins.
