Devin Burns was a quarterback in high school. He played there for his first year at Maryland. And after a one-year stint at wide receiver, he's returned to his old position in an attempt to help out the short-handed Terrapins.
"I feel like I did OK," Rowe said. "Of course, I left plays out on the field, everyone did. But it just wasn't good enough in the end."
"I shouldn't tell you this, but Deon ran the wrong route," Rowe said with a smile. "Deon's a great player and I have all the trust in the world in him. I just gave him a jump ball and he came down with it."
