Johns Hopkins senior offensive lineman Colin Egan is one of 25 players named to the preseason All-America first team, his third such honor this preseason. Egan also was named a first-team preseason All-American by Lindy's college football preview magazine and the Sporting News.

Egan, who is listed at 6 feet, 4 inches and weighs 300 pounds, earned first-team All-America honors last season, one of just three non-seniors to earn that distinction on offense last season. He is one of 21 seniors on the roster for the upcoming season.

Johns Hopkins posted an 11-1 record, won its sixth consecutive Centennial Conference title, and advanced to the second round of the Division III NCAA playoffs last season. The 11 wins were a single-season school record, and the Blue Jays ended the season ranked 10th in both the AFCA and polls.

The Blue Jays are ranked No. 13 nationally by heading into the 2015 season. JHU opens the season on Sept. 5 against Randolph-Macon in Ashland, Virginia. Full schedule
