Pete DeSouza 'getting around pretty good,' Ralph Friedgen says
Pete DeSouza, the redshirt freshman offensive lineman who broke both legs in an Oct. 21 on-campus motor scooter accident, has been seen at the Gossett Team House using a walker and is very determined to get back on the field as quickly as possible, Coach Ralph Friedgen said.
Maryland players had visited DeSouza at a local hospital during the past few weeks, but DeSouza met the entire team at the team house before the Terrapins left campus for their Nov. 13 game at Virginia.
"Everybody was really excited to see him," Friedgen said.
DeSouza is finishing two classes and is "getting around pretty good" on campus, Friedgen said.
DeSouza has told Friedgen that he hopes to be ready to compete in spring practice. Friedgen thinks that recovery timeline might be a tad too optimistic, but "that's the type of kid he is," Friedgen said.
