Hopkins' Margraff sets state record for college football wins

From Sun staff reports
No college football coach in state history has won more games than this man.

Jim Margraff became the winningest college football coach in Maryland state history Saturday, as visiting Johns Hopkins stormed past Ursinus, 42-14.

The rout gives Margraff his 175th career victory, passing Eddie Hurt, who won 174 games with Morgan State from 1929 to 1959.

The Blue Jays (8-0, 7-0 Centennial Conference) turned two special teams mistakes by the Bears (6-2, 5-2) into touchdowns and added a long touchdown pass, all in the first 12 minutes, to give Hopkins a 21-0 lead.

Senior quarterback Braden Anderson completed 13 of 21 passes for 265 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Blue Jays, and Hopkins sophomore Quinn Donaldson added 142 receiving yards and two scores. Anderson also led the team with 68 rushing yards.

With the win, The Blue Jays have now won 41 of are now 41-1 in their past 42 regular-season games.

Johns Hopkins can secure at least a share of its sixth straight Centennial title with a win in either of its final two regular-season games. A win in either of those games would give the Blue Jays the league's automatic bid to the NCAA Division III playoffs.
