Maryland LB Tate to miss 3-4 weeks

Posted on 24 August 2012 by WNST Staff

Maryland will begin normal game-week activities Sunday in preparation for the Sept. 1 season opener against William & Mary

COLLEGE PARK, Md.  Eight days away from its season opener against William & Mary, the Maryland football team prepared to break preseason camp after a morning workout Friday at the on-campus practice facility.

The Terps, who open the season Sept. 1 at 3 p.m. in Capital One Field at Byrd Stadium, were set to hold an evening practice before officially breaking from camp. They’ll start a normal game-like week on Sunday with an afternoon practice.

“Tonight we’ll have a scripted walkthrough, and tomorrow the players will be off,” said head coach Randy Edsall. “We’ll get into our normal routine for game week starting Sunday. We’ve got some stuff done on William & Mary the last two days now, and will tonight with our scripted walkthrough.”

Coach Edsall addressed the media following Friday morning’s session and touched on several items including the development of true freshman quarterback Perry Hills.

“I see a guy who’s out here continually getting better, and continually handling himself in the right way and learning the game plan and going out and executing. I’m excited to watch him and everybody get playing. There have been some exciting things that have happened here during training camp, and a lot of time when you do have that youth combined with the experience that we have with those seniors, that’s a good blend. Sometimes youth is a good thing because they don’t worry about anything.”

An underclassman that has impressed the coaching staff in preseason camp is sophomore defensive lineman Darius Kilgo. The Charlotte, N.C., native’s performance during camp has moved Kilgo to the top of the depth chart at nose tackle.

“We’ve been pleased with Darius,” said Edsall. “One of the reasons that we ended up moving A.J. [Francis] to end is because of the play of Darius. He’s really picked things up very well. Again, he’s one of those guys that is going to continuously get better with him playing. Because of what we’ve seen out of him, that facilitated the move of A.J. from nose to end.”

One position that is not as clear cut is running back with freshmen Wes Brown, Albert Reid and Brandon Ross, and sophomore Justus Pickett all competing for playing time.

“I think it’s very hard to get four guys playing time in there,” said Edsall. “I think you can probably see three in terms of going in. We’ve got some guys there that are nicked up a little bit right now that have to get out on the practice field if they’re going to play against William & Mary. We’ll see how that all unfolds, and we’ll have a better idea as we get closer.”

Tate to Miss Three to Four Weeks: Edsall said senior linebacker Kenneth Tate will miss the next three to four weeks with a left knee injury…Tate missed most of last season with a right knee injury, “He just has some cartilage issues there. It looks to be about a three-to-four week situation — that’s what the doctors have told me.

“The injury wasn’t because he got hit because he really hasn’t scrimmaged at all. It was his left knee; the one he hurt before was his right knee. This is now a similar situation, but in the left knee.”

Brown and Monroe Updates: Sophomore defensive lineman Andre Monroe underwent successful surgery on his knee Thursday…junior quarterback C.J. Brown was scheduled for surgery Friday morning…”Andre’s went well yesterday. C.J. went this morning. I’m sure he’s done by now. I haven’t heard anything. Andre’s surgery went well — he’s at home recovering. He’ll be back on Sunday, and I’ll get an update on C.J. a little later.”

More preseason recognition for Maryland DL Vellano

Posted on 16 July 2012 by WNST Staff

CHICAGO - Maryland fifth-year senior linebacker Kenny Tate on Monday was named as one of 51 candidates to the Butkus Award watch list, which honors the nation’s best linebackers, while Joe Vellano was named to the Lombardi Award watch list.

The Butkus Award, named for NFL Hall of Famer Dick Butkus, is presented annually to the top collegiate, professional and high school linebacker. Semifinalists will be named Oct. 22, finalists Nov. 20 and winners announced on or before Dec. 4.

Tate was up for a number of national honors last season and averaged 8.8 tackles in four games before suffering a season-ending knee injury that caused him to miss most of the year. As a junior in 2010, he was a first team All-ACC selection and a second team All-America choice by College Football News.

In 40 career games, Tate has 197 tackles, 13.5 tackles for loss, seven interceptions and five sacks. He is one of five players from the Atlantic Coast Conference to make the list.

The Lombardi Award is open to all down linemen on offense or defense, or a linebacker setting up no farther than five yards deep from the line of scrimmage. Vellano, who was named to the watch lists for the Bednarik Award, Bronco Nagurski Trophy and Outland Trophy last week, is one of 145 candidates for the Lombardi Award.

Maryland’s Tate, Gilman’s Kiser named to Butkus Award Watch Lists

Posted on 16 July 2012 by WNST Staff

CHICAGO – (July 16, 2012) – The 28th annual Butkus Award® selection process to honor the nation’s best linebackers begins today with announcement of the collegiate and high school pre-season watch list.

Each watch list contains 51 candidates, honoring the now-retired professional jersey number of Dick Butkus, who is regarded by NFL Films as the best defensive player in football history.  The selection panel is comprised of 51 coaches, evaluators and journalists, coordinated by Pro Football Weekly.

The Collegiate Butkus Award watch list includes 51 candidates from 38 universities.  Manti Te’o of Notre Dame is the only returning finalist, after having won the inaugural High School Butkus Award in 2008.  Jarvis Jones of Georgia is a returning semi-finalist.

The High School Butkus Award watch list includes 51 candidates from 50 high schools across 22 states.  Florida (8), Ohio (5) and Texas (5) have the most prep players on the watch list.

Candidates in addition to those appearing on the watch list may be considered for the Award.

Semi-finalists will be named October 22, finalists November 20, and winners will be notified on or before December 4.  The Professional Butkus Award winner will be announced in January 2013. Winners will be featured in a television special a week before the Super Bowl.

2011 Butkus Award winners:

       Professional: Tie.  DeMarcus Ware, Dallas Cowboys, and Terrell Suggs, Baltimore Ravens.

       Collegiate: Luke Kuechly, Boston College, the NFL’s ninth overall draft pick by the Carolina Panthers.

       High School:  Noor Davis, Leesburg High School, Fla., now at Stanford University.

The Butkus Award was expanded in 2008 to honor linebackers at three levels while helping spread the word about Butkus’ I Play Clean™ initiative which encourages teens to eat well, train hard, and play with attitude instead of resorting to steroids and related drugs.  More information is available at www.iplayclean.org or at www.facebook.com/i.play.clean.

The Butkus Award, www.thebutkusaward.com or www.facebook.com/51.butkus, is presented by the Butkus Foundation, a 501c3 non-profit organization. It is part of the National College Football Awards Association, a coalition of the major collegiate awards. More information is available at www.NCFAA.org.
