ACC Legends 2010

It was an exciting evening in Charlotte when three Terps were singled out for ACC honors! Danny O'Brien, red shirt freshman, was voted Offensive Rookie of the Year AND Rookie of the Year! Danny also had a chance to see first hand the excitement about the Championship game and say that this is where he'd like us all to be in 2011!

Also Coach Ralph Friedgen was voted ACC Coach of the Year for the second time after leading the Terps to a 3rd place finish in the ACC in spite of a last place pre-season prediction!

In addition, Darryl Hill was named an ACC Legend for his accomplishments as a player and entrepreneur! It was a great evening for TERPS everywhere.

A visit with Pete DeSouza

I had the chance to visit Pete DeSouza today at the hospital. It was just before he was moved into the National Rehabilitation Hospital where he will begin the physical therapy that will bring him back to "playing form". I had a chance to let him know that lots of people are thinking about him. He expressed his appreciation for all the good wishes. He also commented on the Wake game crediting all players, first through third team, for their great effort. Said he had a tear in his eye when he realized that we are bowl eligible.
All good things to you, PETE!

2010 Terps Freshman Class Checks In

The Gosett Team House was filled with our newest Terps and some of their families to set off the 2010 season. It was great to see the families with their young men and preparing them for the start of their college career. After dinner Ralph introduced the coaching staff and support personnel. Then each player came up and gave their name, position, school and introduced the family members that were present. Then families said their good-byes and their Terp life is on!!!

MGN Kickoff for 2010 Season

Last week Sonoma's Bar and Grill hosted a season kickoff event with many fans present to hear the coaches, ask questions and meet other Terp fans. We repeated the event at Gossett this week and all enjoyed a fun and informative event. After some time for folks to move through the complex they convened in the Terps auditorium and heard from Larry Grabenstein, our MGN Chairman, followed by Ralph, then James and Don. James and Don highlighted their side of the ball and some players on some video footage. A Q & A session followed and then all moved to the dining room for some goodies supplied by Looney's.
