Johns Hopkins coach Jim Margraff will enjoy 160-win achievement later

No. 13 Johns Hopkins' 52-14 thrashing of Moravian last Saturday propelled the team to a 3-0 start and a 2-0 opening record in the Centennial Conference. It also represented a rare accomplishment for Jim Margraff.

Margraff, who was a four-year starting quarterback for the Blue Jays between 1979-82, became only the second head coach in Maryland to collect 160 wins. Margraff, who is 160-81-3 in 24 years at the school, trails only Eddie Hurt, who won 174 games at Morgan State from 1929-59.

Asked what the achievement meant, Margraff said: "I've been here a long time. It's not something I think about very often. It's really the next one that matters. What's behind us doesn’t really interest me."

Johns Hopkins' game Saturday against Muhlenberg (2-1, 1-1) is a critical contest. Since 2001, both teams have either captured or shared the league championship.

That's why Margraff said he will enjoy his 160 wins later.

"There’ll be time to think about that stuff, but Muhlenberg week is not the time," he said.
