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 - #10
Did You Know: Three Johns Hopkins players wearing #10 have earned First Team All-America honors. Each of the three – Mickey Webster, Charlie Coker, Jeff Cook – has earned the honor at least twice.
Player Spotlight – Mickey Webster
Mickey Webster earned First Team All-America honors three times (1957-59)… or all three seasons he was eligible as freshmen could not compete in varsity athletics during his career. He was inducted into the Lacrosse Hall of Fame in 1978 and is a member of the All-Time Johns Hopkins Team.
Webster became the first player in school history to amass more than 100 career assists (105) and he finished his career ranked second in school history in career points (147). He still holds JHU records for assists in a game (9), and season (52) and assists per game in a season (5.2) and career (3.75).
Webster helped the Blue Jays to a 24-3-1 record and the 1957 and 1959 USILA National Championships. Johns Hopkins lost just one game to a collegiate opponent during Webster’s career and the two national championships were the first two for Hall of Fame head coach Bob Scott.
