A Look Back on Howard

Welcome to our new intern, Jack Rothenberg – here is his 1st piece.

By Jack Rothenburg – As I walked into Capital One Field Saturday afternoon, I could feel the excitement and anticipation for the new season to begin.  From the team running out of the new Terrapin Shell tunnel to the band playing on the field, the 2019 football season was underway.

During training camp and leading up to the season opener, every player and coach spoke about the team and compared it to being a family. The team explained that everyone was in “it” together. Throughout the game you caught a glimpse of what “in it together” means. Each player, whether it was the starters giving the Terrapins an early 28-0 lead at the end of the first quarter, or the second teamers who continued to shutdown Howard, everyone showed up.

It was also a day for the record book. Sophomore Dontay Demus Jr. scored his first career touchdown and went over 100 yards receiving for the first time in his career. Fellow sophomore receiver, Sean Nelson also scored his first career touchdown on his first ever reception. Junior quarterback Josh Jackson is the first Maryland quarterback to throw for three first half touchdowns since 2013. 56 is the most points scored in any half in Maryland program history. Finally, the Terps came up one-point shy of tying the most points scored in a single game with the final score being 79-0.

These accomplishments tell me that this team came out of that Terrapin Shell tunnel on Saturday looking to prove something. Trying to prove that this team can go places, and so far they’re off to a fantastic start. However, we shouldn’t get too ahead of ourselves, it was just Howard.
