Terps’ success weighs on tackle Campbell
Question of the Day
There’s little question, though, about his approach to his work: quiet, prideful and determined. He has found himself waking up in the middle of the night throughout camp, just pondering what it will be like to start the season. The NFL remains out of mind.
“I’m still in college,” he said. “I’m still at Maryland. I still have another season, and I probably have another two seasons to play in reality. I’ve got to get through this season before I can do anything to determine anything.”
This season could determine a great deal for Campbell. The Terps’ success hinges on his ability to protect Turner’s blind side as well as his unit’s ability to overcome a mediocre season by plugging into the lineup two former walk-ons and a sophomore who has barely played.
It’s a great onus on Campbell and Costa, the lone senior in the outfit. Campbell, though, fills a role nearly as large as he is - as this week’s domino effect during a rare lousy day showed everyone.
“If he dominates at that position, it could mean gigantic things for the program,” Galt said. “Physically, he is one of the most commanding presences in college football - just by the very nature of his size, by the way he’s built, by the way he carries himself.
“People just take one look at him and say, ‘Oh my gosh.’ ”
