Prince: "Hometown pride" defines Maryland
If you began to miss college football already, the cure might be right around the corner.
Maryland has officially released dates for its Pro Day, Spring Game, and spring practices, which begin Saturday, March 1 in College Park.
SENIOR PRO DAY
Maryland will hold its Senior Pro Day on Tuesday, April 8 at 11 a.m. The Terrapins were a team that was relatively young and lacking in seniors this past season, but the biggest draw will be the expected return of cornerback Dexter McDougle.
McDougle was sidelined for the remainder of the season in Week 3 against Connecticut and underwent extensive surgery to repair a shoulder injury. The plan has been for him to return for Pro Day.
Pro Day is not open to the general public.
Maryland's annual Spring Game will take place on Friday, April 11 at 7 p.m. at Byrd Stadium.
OPEN SPRING PRACTICE
Maryland will hold a spring practice at North Point High School in Waldorf, Md., at 6:30 p.m. on March 28. The program encourages fans to attend and admission is free.
Head coach Randy Edsall spoke about the scrimmage to the media last week:
“It puts us in a different part of the state,” Edsall said “Instead of maybe people always having to come to us, we can reach out and go into different areas and that was one of the things we wanted to do.”
The Terrapins are scheduled to practice the following days, which are open to media:
March 1: 10:35 a.m.
March 3: 9 a.m.
March 5: 9 a.m.
March 10: 9 a.m.
March 12: 9 a.m.
March 26: 9 a.m.
March 28 (above): 6:30 p.m.
April 2: 9 a.m.
April 7: 9 a.m.
April 9: 9 a.m.
Edsall said last week that he is favoring a new schedule of practicing in the morning, which would explain the abundance of 9 a.m. starts for his team.
