Johns Hopkins football coach Jim Margraff will welcome the 2012 Blue Jays to preseason camp on Aug. 11 in Baltimore.
Among those reporting will be a class of 31 freshmen who are set to join the program for the first time. The highly touted 31 hail from 16 different states and will look to make an immediate impact on a team that has won three straight Centennial Conference Championships and counts a 36-10 record to its credit since the start of the 2008 season.
The incoming freshman football class includes offensive lineman Daulton Newman (6-1, 285) of Eupora. He the son of Mark and Charlotte Newman.
Johns Hopkins will carry a 14-game regular season winning streak into the 2012 season and will open the season at home for the first time since 2008 when Randolph-Macon visits Homewood Field on Sept. 1. Recruiting Process
When Newman committed to Johns Hopkins University to play football, he knew he made the right decision that would impact not only his next four years but his next 40 years.
Choosing to take the recruiting process into his own hands by joining NCSA Athletic Recruiting, Newman took a proactive approach focused on using technology and building relationships that led him to JHU.
Maintaining a 4.0 GPA, being a four-year varsity starter and captain of his team did not slow down this Eupora High School graduate as he strived to be a leader in sports and in his community.
Thousands of high school athletes end their high school careers without a commitment, but Newman’s unique story of finding NCSA and being proactive in his recruiting process will allow him the benefits of playing collegiate sports.
