Dallastown High School graduate Addison Quinones enjoyed a standout season for the Johns Hopkins University football team and earned a pair of significant awards.
The 5-foot, 10-inch, 185-pound junior defensive back led the Blue Jays in tackles with 60 and also recorded 5.5 tackles for a loss and 1.5 sacks. He also posted two interceptions, two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery and one pass breakup on the year.
For his efforts, Quinones was recently named to the 2017 All-Centennial Conference Football First Team. Quinones is the 26th defensive back in school history to earn First-Team All-Centennial honors.
The former Wildcat excelled off the field as well this season, picking up a 2017 CoSIDA Academic All-District II Football Team honor.
To be eligible for CoSIDA Academic All-District honors, a student-athlete must have at least a 3.30 cumulative grade-point average, be a sophomore or above and a starter or significant reserve. A neuroscience major, Quinones has a 3.49 cumulative GPA.
The Blue Jays went 9-1 in the regular season, earning a share of a ninth consecutive Centennial Conference title and a trip to the NCAA Division III playoffs. However, Hopkins fell to Washington & Jefferson on a late field goal in the first round of the NCAA Division III tournament.
The 9-2 campaign saw Hopkins place 13 players on the all-conference team. Their 10 first-team selections tied a school record. Quinones was one of four defensive players to earn first-team honors.
In 2014, Quinones was the York-Adams League Division I Football Player of the Year and the York-Adams League Division I Lacrosse Defensive Player of the Year.
