It’s been a rough year on the gridiron around here. The Ravens have more star players injured than wins. The Terps had to fire their coach mid-year. But it’s Thanksgiving weekend, and we will not be denied some football. Maybe it’s time to rally around the Blue Jays.

Johns Hopkins’ football team is undefeated this year at 11-0, and they’ve already advanced in the playoffs. Baltimore Magazine has a fascinating feature on the team, noting its recruiting strategies. The team’s success has partially been a result of standouts in the form of Boys’ Latin grad Brandon Cherry at tailback, and wide receiver Bradley Munday. At 5 ft. 6 in., 175 lbs., Cherry may not be ready to face Big 10 linebackers. But in NCAA’s Division III, his talent is evident in a 2,500 rushing yard career.

In the first round of this  year’s playoffs, the Blue Jays dominated Western New England 52-20. On Saturday, Nov. 28, they’ll take on Wesley College in the second round at Homewood Field. It’s not exactly M&T Bank Stadium, but tickets are only $8.
