Blue Jays, Yellow Jackets Meet in Key Early-Season Non-Conference Game

Updated August 21, 2013

In his fifth season as a member of head coach Jim Margraff's staff is Greg Chimera, a 2009 Johns Hopkins graduate and a four-year member of the Blue Jay football team during his time at Homewood.

After working primarily with the Blue Jay running backs and tight ends during his first four years, Chimera will move outside and coach the Johns Hopkins wide receivers this season. He inherits a group that returns its top two pass catchers from a year ago, including senior Dan Wodicka, whose 216 career receptions are the most of any Division III receiver entering the 2013 season.

Chimera's first four seasons as a member of the staff were highly successful as JHU claimed at least a share of four Centennial titles, made three trips to the NCAA Playoffs and posted a 38-9 record. The Blue Jays advanced to the NCAA Quarterfinals in his first season (2009) and the second round of the NCAAs a year ago.

Chimera has coached two All-Centennial running backs in Andrew Kase (2009) and Jonathan Rigaud (2011, 2012) and one All-CC tight end in Brian Hopkins (2009). Kase and Rigaud rank as the top two rushers in school history with more than 7,500 yards and 80 touchdowns between them.

In his first season as a member of the staff in 2009, he helped guide the Blue Jays to a 10-3 record, the Centennial Conference Championship and a trip to the NCAA Quarterfinals. That year, he worked closely with Kase, who earned Centennial Offensive Player of the Year honors and finished his career as JHU's career leader in rushing.

Chimera then groomed Rigaud, who capped his career last season by earning D3football.com All-America and Centennial Conference Offensive Player of the Year honors with more than 1,500 yards rushing and 22 touchdowns.

Chimera played fullback and was a regular on special teams throughout his career at Johns Hopkins. He paved the way over his last two years for Kase, who topped 1,000 yards in each season. Chimera scored five touchdowns in his career and started 16 games over his final two seasons.
