Blue Jay Jersey Countdown - #38
As we countdown to '13, a season Blue Jay faithful hope will end with a 10 on the 27th, HopkinsSports.com offers its own countdown ... by jersey number ... to the season-opener against Siena on February 8.
Today - #38
Did You Know: Chris Chirieleison wore #38 as a freshman defender on JHU’s 1987 NCAA Championship team. He also still holds the Johns Hopkins school record for the longest rush by a Blue Jay football player (89 yards).
Player Spotlight – Rob Enright
Enright emerged as a solid young defender for the Blue Jays last season as he played in 10 games and earned two starts. He is expected to play a prominent role for the Blue Jays during the 2013 season after being one of just five JHU freshmen to play in 10 or more games last season.
Enright gained international experience last summer as he was a key member of the United States Team that won the FIL Under-19 World Championship in Finland. He became the 17th Johns Hopkins to player to represent the United States in the U-19 Championships.
