Oct. 7, 2013

LANCASTER, PA - Johns Hopkins senior quarterback Robbie Matey(Orlando, FL/Dr. Phillips) has been named the Centennial Conference Offensive Player of the Week for his efforts in Saturday's 65-10 win at Juniata. He is the first Johns Hopkins player to earn the award this season.

Matey enjoyed the finest game of his career against the Eagles as he was 23-of-26 with career-highs of 408 yards passing and six touchdowns. His 408 yards rank as the fifth-highest single-game total in school history and his six TDs are just one shy of the Johns Hopkins and Centennial Conference single-game records. In addition, his completion percentage (.885) is the highest in school and Centennial Conference history by a quarterback with 25 or more passing attempts.

Matey, who improved his career record to 17-2 as Johns Hopkins' starting quarterback, is now 114-of-146 (.781) for 1,380 yards with 10 touchdowns against just three interceptions this season. He currently leads the nation in completion percentage and ranks 10th in pass efficiency rating (175.97), 28th in touchdown passes and 34th in passing yards per game (276.0).

With a quick start to the season, Matey is also making a move in the Johns Hopkins record books. He currently ranks fifth in total offense (4,883), sixth in career completions (394) and passing yards (4,431), seventh in attempts (554) and 10th in touchdown passes (25). He needs just 569 yards passing and 48 yards rushing to become the first player in Johns Hopkins history to pass for 5,000 yards and rush for 500 yards.

Matey has guided Johns Hopkins to a 5-0 record, including a 4-0 mark in the Centennial Conference, as the Blue Jays enter their bye week. Under his direction the Blue Jays are averaging 44.8 points and 545.2 yards per game, marks that rank 11th and sixth, respectively. Johns Hopkins also leads the nation in first downs (148) and the Blue Jays' 424 offensive plays through five games are the second-most in the nation.
