Blue Jays Welcome Greyhounds to Homewood For Key Centennial Game
Updated August 19, 2012
Back for his third season on head coach Jim Margraff's coaching staff is Mike Toerper, who came to Johns Hopkins after serving as an assistant coach at Duquesne in 2009 and coaches the Blue Jay wide receivers.
Toerper's wide receivers were at the heart of JHU's record-breaking offense last season as Dan Wodicka (87-1,245-7), Sam Wernick (71-644-8) and Scott Cremens (59-705-9) were one of the most dynamic trios in the nation. They helped fuel an offense that set school records for points per game (39.8) and passing yards per game (312.3). Wodicka and Wernick both earned First Team All-Centennial honors with Wodicka's 87 receptions establishing a school record.
Toerper made an instant impact on the Blue Jay passing game in 2010 as he coached junior Sam Wernick to Centennial Conference Offensive Player of the Year honors. Wernick set a JHU and Centennial single-season record with 17 touchdown receptions and was at the heart of a passing attack that generated better than 300 yards per game.
Toerper was a three-time letterwinner at the University of Pittsburgh, where he played in the Panther secondary and was a standout on special teams. During his final season at Pitt the Panthers posted a 9-4 record, tied for second place in the BIG EAST Conference and played in the Brut Sun Bowl. His blocked punt at UConn fueled a 34-10 win over the Huskies in the regular season finale that year. Toerper played in all 13 games that season and 36 games during his career.
