Blue Jays to host RMU in NCAA 1st Round

jhu-football

After completing their fourth-straight perfect regular season the Blue Jays have been selected to host Randolph-Macon in the first round of the 2016 NCAA Division III Football playoffs. The game will kick off at noon on Saturday, Nov. 19.

The winner of the game will play the winner of the Hobart-Mount Union first round game the following Saturday. The location of that game is still to be determined. It is likely that since Mount Union is ranked three spot ahead of the No. 10 Blue Jays they would host the game no matter their opponent should they be victorious.

The Yellow Jackets won the Old Dominion Athletic Conference and the league’s accompanying automatic bid to earn a spot in the NCAA Tournament. The two teams will play for the 39th time in their history. The Blue Jays hold a 21-16-1 advantage and had met four-straight seasons before 2016. The Blue Jays have won four-straight, six of the last seven and nine of the last 12 games since 2002. Prior to the team’s renewing their rivalry in 2002 the teams hadn’t met since 1968.

On their way to earning a spot in their third-straight postseason, Randolph-Macon, which received 12 votes in the final D3football.com poll, had outscored their opponents by an average of 19.6 points per game. They have held teams to just 706 total rushing yards on the season, out-gaining them on the ground 2,236 to 706. Tre Frederick leads Randolph-Macon’s rushing attack with 1,345 yards and 11 touchdowns, averaging 5.2 yards per carry.

You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
