BALTIMORE, Md. --- The honors continue to roll in for Johns Hopkins junior safety Matt Campbell (Hillsborough, NJ/Hillsborough), who has been named an All-American by both the Associated Press and d3football.com. Campbell, who was previously named a First Team All-American by the Division III Sports Information Directors, has been named a Second Team Associated Press Little All-America, while earning Third Team All-America status from d3football.com.

A unanimous First Team All-Centennial selection and the first Johns Hopkins player to earn Centennial Conference Defensive Player of the Year honors since 1997, Campbell finished tied for second on the team in tackles (65) and led the team and the Centennial Conference in interceptions with eight. He also had a team-high 11 pass breakups to his credit. Campbell's eight interceptions tied the JHU single-season record and he spearheaded a unit that ranked among the top five in the nation throughout the season in scoring defense and pass efficiency defense. The Blue Jays allowed a total of just 77 points in 11 games and intercepted 28 passes on the year while allowing just two touchdown passes.

Johns Hopkins won a school-record 10 games (10-1) in 2003 and grabbed a share of a second straight Centennial Conference Championship. The Blue Jays also won a second consecutive ECAC Championship as they defeated King's (PA), 41-13 in the ECAC South Atlantic Championship Game. Under the guidance of head coach Jim Margraff the Blue Jays are in the midst of the greatest run in school history. Hopkins spent nine weeks during the 2003 season ranked in the top 30, seven weeks in the top 25, and five weeks ranked in the top 20. Hopkins is 19-3 since the beginning of the 2002 season and 25-6 since the beginning of the 2001 season.
