Blue Jays' Jenifer named first-team All-American

He is the first JHU player to garner recognition since 2006

Johns Hopkins junior offensive lineman Armand Jenifer was named to the American Football Coaches Association NCAA Division III All-America first team on Tuesday, making him the first member of the Blue Jays' football team to be named to the team since Ben Scott in 2006.

Jenifer started every game at right tackle this season for JHU, and has started 30 consecutive games dating to the 2010 season. He anchored a line that paved the way for an offense that averaged 36.8 points and 485.2 yards per game, both the second-highest totals in school history.

The AFCA All-American team consists of 25 players—11 on offense, 11 on defense, and three specialists. Jenifer is one of six juniors named to the team; the remaining players are seniors.

Johns Hopkins posted a 10-2 record, won a fourth consecutive Centennial Conference title, and advanced to the second round of the NCAA Division IIII playoffs this season.
