Maryland’s Caleb Rowe eager to learn after an erratic debut
Freshman threw 3 interceptions
Question of the Day
Clearly, falling to the Eagles (2-6, 1-4) was a damaging setback for the Terps.
Rowe, however, demonstrated enough moxie to provide some hope to teammates the season was not lost.
“Every quarterback on our [roster] I feel comfortable with out there,” defensive lineman A.J. Francis said. “Our offense, it doesn’t really matter who’s out there. Caleb played a hell of a game today.
“He made some mistakes, and it was his first start. I made some mistakes and it was my 31st. We all have room to improve, and he’s going to learn from his mistakes and play better in the future. We’re going to need him to.”
Maryland will need him to be sharp when disappointing Georgia Tech (3-5, 2-3) visits Byrd Stadium on Saturday.
For his part, Rowe can barely wait for his latest opportunity.
“I’m definitely ready to get better,” Rowe said. “As a football player, you can’t ever stop getting better. I’m ready to learn from these mistakes and continue with the season.”
NOTE:Edsall said Sunday freshman walk-on Brendan Magistro will handle field goal attempts from inside roughly 35 to 40 yards this week, while Craddock will be used for attempts beyond that distance.
Craddock missed a 35-yard field goal Saturday and is 8 for 14 on the season. Magistro debuted against the Eagles and made a 28-yard field goal and two extra points.
