Tomlin Grabs CC Offensive Player of the Week Honors

More news about: Johns Hopkins

LANCASTER, PA – Johns Hopkins junior quarterback Hewitt Tomlin (Jackson, TN/Trinity Christian) has been named the Centennial Conference Offensive Player of the Week for his efforts in a 29-21 win at Gettysburg on Saturday (9-18).  It is the first time in his career that Tomlin has earned the honor.

Tomlin was 22-of-31 for 326 yards with three touchdowns against one interception in the win over the Bullets.  The 326 passing yards are the third-highest single-game total of Tomlin's career, while the three touchdown passes tied his career high.

In addition to gaining the victory, Tomlin also continued his assault on the Johns Hopkins and Centennial Conference record books.  He set school records with 16th 200-yard passing game and fourth 300-yard passing game and is the first player in school history to throw for 300 yards in consecutive games (he threw for 384 in the season-opener at Randolph-Macon).  He had been tied with current Johns Hopkins head coach Jim Margraff with 15 career 200-yard passing games.

Tomlin's effort at Gettysburg improved his career totals to 5,199 passing yards with 30 touchdowns on 434 completions and 731 attempts.  He ranks third in career completions, fourth in passing yards, fifth in attempts and seventh in TD passes.  His 5,199 passing yards are also the most ever by a Centennial Conference quarterback prior to their senior year.

Johns Hopkins is currently 1-1 overall and 1-0 in the Centennial Conference. Tomlin and the Blue Jays will play their seventh consecutive road game (four to end the 2009 season – three to open the 2010 season) this Saturday when they travel to Moravian (1-2, 1-1 CC).
