Wodicka, Jenifer Earn Preseason All-America Honors From Lindy's 2012 College Football Preview
June 21, 2012
BALTIMORE, MD -- Johns Hopkins rising juniors Dan Wodicka (West Lafayette, IN/West Lafayette) and Armand Jenifer (Teaneck, NJ/Bergen County Academies) have been selected as Preseason Second Team All-Americans in Lindy's 2012 College Football Preview. Johns Hopkins was one of just six schools with two or more players named to the team and the only one of the six to have both of its selections be non-seniors.
Wodicka enjoyed one of the finest seasons by a wide receiver in school history last season as he totaled a school-record 87 receptions for 1,245 yards with seven touchdowns. A First Team d3football.com All-South Region and First Team All-Centennial Conference selection, he finished 10th in the nation in receptions per game and 11th in receiving yards per game. In just two seasons he already has 122 receptions for 1,775 yards and eight touchdowns to his credit.
Jenifer established himself as one of the top young offensive linemen in the nation last season as he started all 11 games at right tackle and earned Second Team d3football.com All-South, Second Team All-ECAC South and First Team All-Centennial Conference honors. He led the way for an offense that averaged school records of 39.8 points and 492.7 yards per game. Jenifer was the only non-senior offensive lineman in the Centennial Conference to earn first team all-league honors and he was one of just two sophomore offensive linemen in the nation to earn first or second team all-region honors from d3football.com.
Under the guidance of head coach Jim Margraff, Johns Hopkins posted a 10-1 record, won its third straight Centennial Conference title and finished the season ranked 19th in the AFCA Division III Poll in 2011. The Centennial title was the seventh for Johns Hopkins since 2002, while the Blue Jays made their third trip to the NCAA Playoffs since 2005.
Johns Hopkins will carry a 14-game regular season winning streak into the 2012 season and will open the season at home for the first time since 2008 when Randolph-Macon visits Homewood Field on Saturday, September 1.
