Maryland football has high hopes for future; UMD standouts honored

Ty JohnsonBALTIMORE - The University of Maryland football team’s 2017 season began like a dream, but after that, it became a nightmare.

The Terrapins beat the University of Texas on the road 51-41 in their season opener and jumped to a 3-1 start.

However, Maryland then lost quarterbacks Tyrell Pigrome and Kasim Hill to severe injuries very early in the season, throwing most of the load to inexperienced Max Bortenschlager, who played well at times but often struggled.

All of that combined is why Maryland slipped to a 4-8 finish last season. Things did not get better in the summer as Jordan McNair died after becoming sick at a workout.

Now, the Terrapins are working on getting through that, a difficult task at any time, and it’s something that Head Coach DJ Durkin talked about at the Big Ten Media Day on July 24.
