The play at quarterback for Maryland in 2015 was not pretty, and that is being generous. Terrapin quarterbacks threw 29 interceptions. Their 5.4 yards passing per attempt was the second lowest in the Big Ten.
The two Terps who saw the most action at quarterback, Caleb Rowe and Perry Hills return to play under new head coach DJ Durkin. At this point in training camp, Durkin is not naming his starter for the Sept. 3 opener against Howard.
“I think number one is decision making,” Durkin said. “He’s got to take care of the football because has the football in his hands every down.”
In addition to the interceptions, last season Maryland quarterbacks lost eight fumbles. Which is why Durkin is emphasizing ball security.
