3. TOP MARYLAND PLAYERS

Best Maryland Offensive Player

RB Anthony McFarland, Soph. 
The terrific running game of last year had its flash in a 5-8, 193-pound force. Not big enough to handle a massive workload, he was still able to carry the ball 50 times over a two-week span against Indiana and Ohio State, tearing through the Buckeyes for 298 yards and the Hoosiers for 210 yards.

McFarland led the team with close to eight yards per carry, running for 1,034 yards and four scores. Now he needs to get even more work – he got double-digit carries just four times.

2. QB Josh Jackson, Jr.
3. WR Jeshaun Jones, Soph.
4. PK Joseph Petrino, Soph.
5. OG Sean Christie, Sr.

Best Maryland Defensive Player

S Antoine Brooks, Sr. 
One of the Big Ten’s best all-around defensive backs over the last two years – coming up with 77 tackles and two picks – he made 68 tackles with 2.5 sacks, 9.5 tackles for loss and a pick last year a freelancer in the Nickel spot.

Now he’ll likely step in as a true safety with Antwaine Richardson out for the year with a torn ACL, and with Darnell Savage off to become a Green Bay Packer. The 5-10, 210-pounder can play anywhere in the secondary.

2. LB Isaiah Davis, Sr.
3. CB Tino Ellis, Sr.
4. NT Adam McLean, Sr.
5. LB Keandre Jones, Sr.
