LANCASTER, PA -- Johns Hopkins senior running back Andrew Kase (Wyomissing, PA/Wyomissing) and senior strong safety Devin Hewlett (Clarks Summit, PA/Abington Heights) have been selected as the Centennial Conference Offensive and Defensive Players of the Week, respectively, for their efforts in last Saturday's 51-13 win over Franklin & Marshall. This is the sixth time in his career and the third time this season that Kase has earned the award, while Hewlett was honored for the first time.

Kase powered a Blue Jay offense that rang up a season-high 507 yards as he rushed 34 times for 198 yards and three touchdowns. The 198 yards are a season high and the fourth-highest single-game total of his career. Kase reached a pair of milestones in the win against the Diplomats as his 198 yards pushed his season total to 1,178 yards and his career total of 4,132 yards. He tied the Centennial Conference record with his third straight 1,000-yard season, and he became just the fourth player in Maryland state history and the seventh in Centennial history to top 4,000 career rushing yards. He also broke his own Johns Hopkins single-season records for single-season touchdowns (18) and points (115).

Hewlett led a Johns Hopkins defense that held Franklin & Marshall to -20 yards rushing and nearly 20 points under its season scoring average entering the game. He totaled four tackles, two sacks, one interception and one pass breakup as the Diplomats were held under 20 points for the first time this season. Hewlett's interception was one of two on the day for the Blue Jays, who have now forced two or more turnovers in 10 straight games dating back to last season.

Johns Hopkins is currently 7-2 overall and 6-1 in the Centennial Conference. The Blue Jays travel to McDaniel (5-4, 3-4 CC) on Saturday (1 pm) to close the regular season. A win will give Johns Hopkins no worse than a share of the Centennial Conference title and will secure the league's automatic bid to the upcoming NCAA Playoffs. Four teams (Johns Hopkins, Dickinson, Ursinus and Franklin & Marshall) enter the final weekend of the regular season with a chance to grab at least a share of the Centennial Conference title, but only Johns Hopkins controls its own fate in the race for the automatic bid.
