Friedgen: a 'Good, Tough' Scrimmage
Maryland’s second scrimmage was a long one. The first-team offense got about 64 plays as the Terrapins played through the Sunday afternoon heat. But that’s what Coach Ralph Friedgen wanted. He put his players through some two-minute drill situations at the end, and he wanted to see how they would respond to the fatigue and the heat.
Redshirt freshman running back Gary Douglas had the most impressive day, collecting 122 yards on 17 carries. But his main competitor for the third-string running back spot, Morgan Green, had 51 yards on his last seven carries alone, including a 20-yard touchdown run.
Starting quarterback Chris Turner completed 13 of 20 passes for 113 yards. Backup Jamarr Robinson directed two scoring drives but only completed 5 of 14 passes for 59 yards.
Backup cornerback Trenton Hughes made a team-high six solo stops among his seven tackles. Defensive back Austin Walker and linebacker Demetrius Hartsfield each had six tackles. Hartsfield also had two tackles for loss, including a sack.
"It was a good, tough scrimmage," Friedgen said. "I wanted to get about three quarters in."
Maryland is scheduled to have one final scrimmage Thursday, but it remains to be seen how hard the Terrapins go in the third scrimmage of camp.
