2013 CoSIDA/Capital One Academic All-District Football Teams (All Divisions, All Districts)

BALTIMORE, MD - The Johns Hopkins University football team placed seven players on the 2013 CoSIDA/Capital One Academic All-District II Football Team, which was announced today. The seven selections are the most among all teams in District II and give the Johns Hopkins football program 65 Academic All-District selections in the last 11 years and 91 selections since 1991. During JHU's current five-year run at the top of the Centennial Conference the Blue Jays have now produced 36 Academic All-District players.

Johns Hopkins' seven selections this year are also tied for the second-highest total in school history. The Blue Jays produced nine Academic All-District selections in 2011 and this is the fourth time Hopkins has had seven players honored.

Four of Johns Hopkins' seven selections are making their second appearance on the team as senior linebacker John Arena (Bryn Mawr, PA/St. Joe's Prep), senior tackle Vincenzo Bonaddio (Garnet Valley, PA/Salesianum), senior nose guard Joe DiTrolio (Newtown Square, PA/Malvern Prep) and junior cornerback Ryan Rice (Frisco, TX/Wakeland) are all repeat honorees. Joining them on the team are senior wide receiver Bob D'Orazio (Bryn Mawr, PA/St. Joe's Prep), senior center Ben Cranston (Parkton, MD/Loyola) and junior defensive end Michael Longo (Scarsdale, NY/Iona Prep), who were all selected for the first time.

Arena is majoring in neuroscience and is the only player named to the team with a perfect 4.0 cumulative GPA. He is currently third on the team with 36 tackles and counts 6.5 tackles for loss and 5.0 sacks to his credit. He is Johns Hopkins' active career leader in tackles (151). Arena, a First Team CoSIDA/Capital One Academic All-American as a junior, was recently named to the 2013 National Football Foundation Scholar-Athlete Class, an award that carries an $18,000 postgraduate scholarship. He will be graduating in December.

Bonaddio earned Second Team CoSIDA/Capital One Academic All-America last season and is double majoring in earth and planetary science and public health. He carries a 3.82 cumulative GPA and is a key member of the Blue Jays' offensive line. A Second Team All-Centennial pick a year ago, he is leading the way for an offense averaging 40.5 points and 529.2 yards per game. The Blue Jays rank fourth in the nation in total offense and 20th in scoring offense. Bonaddio has volunteered with YO! Programs Eastside as a tutor in math and writing to help young adults get their GED and has also volunteered with JHU's Pen Lucy tutoring program with inner city children.

DiTrolio carries a 3.65 cumulative GPA and is majoring in economics. He is the anchor of the Blue Jays' defensive line as he ranks fourth on the team - and first among defensive linemen - with 31 tackles. He also counts 4.5 tackles for loss and 2.5 sacks to his credit. He enters this week's game against Franklin & Marshall just six tackles shy of 100 for his career. With DiTrolio holding down the middle of the line, Johns Hopkins ranks 19th in the nation in rushing defense (96.1) and the Blue Jays are allowing just 2.6 yards per rushing attempt. DiTrolio served as a management consulting intern at the Philadelphia office of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (PwC) last summer and has already accepted job there. He is a member of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars and the Financial Analysts Club at Johns Hopkins.

Rice is the leader of a young Johns Hopkins secondary that doesn't count a senior on the roster. He boasts a 3.68 cumulative GPA and is majoring in economics with a minor in entrepreneurship & management. A Second Team All-Centennial selection a year ago, he has a team-high three interceptions and 17 tackles to his credit this season. The opposition is completing just 52.3% of its pass attempts this season and Rice has career totals of 77 tackles, nine pass breakups and four interceptions. Rice completed an internship at the Institute for Applied Economics and conducted Network Theory Research in the JHU Economics Department last summer.

Despite missing the last two games with an injury, D'Orazio still ranks fifth on the team in receptions (21) and second on the team in receiving yards (320), while his four touchdown receptions are a team-high. D'Orazio is majoring in public health and has a 3.36 cumulative GPA. He ranks 19th in school history in receptions (80) and 20th in receiving yards (1,070). D'Orazio completed a community outreach internship at People's Community Health Center and also completed a research project through the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in the area neurology and sleep medicine.

Cranston is in his third year as a starter on the Blue Jay offensive line and second year as JHU's center. He is majoring in English and psychology and has a 3.49 cumulative GPA. A First Team All-Centennial Conference selection as a junior, he anchors an offensive line that paves the way for a unit that is averaging 40.5 points and 529.2 yards per game. Cranston has been very active off the field, volunteering with JHU's Pen Lucy Tutoring Program working with inner city children and at the Sheppard Pratt Mental Health System. He also interned at the Law Office of Attorney/State Lobbyist Frank D. Boston III.

Longo is majoring in public health/pre-med. and has a 3.63 cumulative GPA. He leads the team in sacks (6.5), ranks second in tackles for loss (8.5) and is tied for seventh in tackles (28). An Honorable Mention All-Centennial pick as a sophomore, he counts career totals of 78 tackles, 17 TFLs and 11.5 sacks to his credit. Longo has volunteered with Habitat for Humanity and JHU's Pen Lucy Tutoring Program with inner city children. He also served as a research assistant at Baltimore Station South with people recovering from substance abuse.

Johns Hopkins' seven Academic All-District honorees now go on the ballot for CoSIDA/Capital One Academic All-America. That team will be announced on December 3. The Johns Hopkins football program has produced 17 all-time CoSIDA Academic All-Americans.

Johns Hopkins enters this week's regular season finale against Franklin & Marshall with an 8-0 overall record and a 7-0 record in the Centennial Conference. The Blue Jays have already clinched at least a share of their fifth straight Centennial Conference title and can earn the outright title and league's automatic bid to the upcoming NCAA Playoffs with a win against the Diplomats. Johns Hopkins is currently ranked eighth in the nation.
