Maryland's Danny O'Brien Named ACC Rookie of the Week

As far as statlines go, 18-27, 250 yards, and two TDs is pretty solid. If the person responsible for it is also a rookie, well, then it's award-worthy.

Maryland's perhaps-starting-perhaps-not-starting QB Danny O'Brien was named the ACC's Rookie of the Week today for his performance against FIU. He's the third Terp to gain some sort of weekly recognition from the conference, the first two being Kenny Tate and Joe Vellano for their play against Navy in the opener.

This also gives me a chance to point out that Patrick Stevens broke down all of Maryland's freshman starters, and O'Brien is clearly the best ever. Considering he's keeping company with Latrez Harrison (became a wide receiver), Randall Jones (became a safety), Calvin McCall (became a basketball player), and Ken Mastrole (became a Rhode Island Ram), I'm fully expecting him to give up football for postgraduate culinary school, or something equally ridiculous.

Anyway, props and congrats to Danny. Hopefully for Maryland's sake, this won't be the last time he gets a Player of the Week honor from the ACC.

(And yes, this is the third consecutive Danny story on the front page. He's a media sensation).
