LANDOVER — Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs made a triumphant return to Maryland on Sunday.
Diggs, a former Good Counsel and University of Maryland standout, said he had about 17 friends and family members in attendance at FedEx Field for his homecoming game against the Washington Redskins.
“It felt good,” Diggs said following Minnesota’s 38-30 victory over the Redskins. “I love being around a lot of love. It’s kind of like a home game for me. Especially when I come home, they show me a lot of love. It feels good.”
The former All-Sentinel player didn’t disappoint his supporters, finishing with five receptions for 78 yards including a three-yard score from quarterback Case Keenum that put the Vikings ahead, 14-10, early in the second quarter.
