More news about: Johns Hopkins

BALTIMORE, MD - Fresh off one of the greatest seasons in school history, the honors continue to roll in for the 2011 Johns Hopkins football team as the Blue Jays had three players named to the 2011 CoSIDA/Capital One Division III Academic All-America Football Team it was announced today. Senior tackle Roland Massimino (Lake Barrington, IL/Barrington) was named to the first team, while senior guard Doug Drummond (White Plains, NY/Iona Prep) and senior defensive end Kale Sweeney (Schnecksville, PA/Parkland) earned second team honors.

Johns Hopkins' three selections are tied with Mt. Union for the second-most among all Division III schools and raise JHU's all-time total of Academic All-America football players to 15.

Massimino, a First Team All-Centennial Conference selection, was a mainstay at left tackle for the Blue Jays over the last two years with starts in 22 consecutive games. He helped JHU rank among the national leaders in points (39.8) and yards per game (492.7) this season. Both of those marks are school records. A mathematics major with a 3.69 GPA, he interned at Capital One last summer in the Loyalty Services Division. He has served as a summer camp counselor at football and basketball camps and has volunteered as a tutor, mentor and coach at Boys and Girls clubs.

Drummond earned Honorable Mention All-Centennial honors this season as he was also part of the offensive line that helped Hopkins set school records for points (39.8) and yards (492.7) yards per game. He is the Johns Hopkins Student Athlete Advisory Committee Treasurer and spent last summer as a Research/Trading Analyst at Lapides Asset Management. He also completed a finance internship at Gulliver's Travel Associates in 2010 and is the Director of Student Recruitment with Pen Lucy's Youth Mentoring Program in Baltimore. Drummond is majoring in economics, has a 3.56 cumulative GPA and twice earned CoSIDA/Capital One Academic All-District honors during his career.

Sweeney adds to his growing list of post-season awards with his Academic All-America selection. He previously earned First Team All-Centennial Conference and Second Team d3football.com All-South Region honors. Sweeney is majoring in public health and boasts a 3.42 cumulative grade point average. The leader of the Blue Jay defensive line, he finished third on the team in tackles (61) and paced the team in tackles for losses (10.0) and sacks (5.0) from his defensive end spot. Sweeney interned at the Pediatric Cancer Foundation of the Lehigh Valley last summer and has been active with Arrow Child & Family Ministries. In addition, he is a volunteer mentor with JHU's Athletes Care initiative and has already been accepted into JHU's prestigious Bloomberg School of Public Health for Graduate School. Sweeney was also a two-time CoSIDA/Capital One Academic All-District selection at Hopkins.

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.
