LANCASTER, PA - For the second time this season, Johns Hopkins senior quarterback Hewitt Tomlin(Jackson, TN/Trinity Christian) has been named the Centennial Conference Offensive Player of the Week after he guided the Blue Jays to a 47-6 win over Dickinson last Friday night. Tomlin had previously earned the honor after JHU's 45-14 victory over Merchant Marine in the season-opener.
After missing the previous two games, Tomlin returned against the Red Devils and was 25-of-38 for 390 yards with two touchdowns and one interception while also rushing for a touchdown in the victory. The 390 yards passing ranks as the third-highest single-game total in school history, while the 390 yards of total offense also checks in at number three all-time in JHU history.
Tomlin further etched his name in the Centennial Conference record book in the victory, becoming the league's career leader in total offense (9,154) and 300-yard passing games (10). He also became just the fourth quarterback in CC history to throw 60 or more career touchdown passes as his two pushed his career mark to 61.
With his effort against Dickinson, Tomlin is now 90-of-136 for 1,163 yards with 11 touchdowns against two interceptions on the year. He currently leads the Centennial Conference in total offense (290.5 yards per game), passing (290.8) and completion percentage (66.2%). He also ranks second in pass efficiency (163.4) and touchdown passes, while directing an offense that ranks second in the Centennial in scoring (41.7) and total offense (487.0).
Johns Hopkins (6-0, 5-0 CC), which tied the school record with its 11th straight win last Friday against Dickinson, travels to Gettysburg on Saturday (Oct. 22) for a key Centennial Conference game against the Bullets (4-2, 4-1 CC).
