Gilman's Shane Cockerille wasn't the most touted quarterback heading into the Nike Football Training Camp at McDaniel College, but the future Terp finished Sunday as the event's most impressive signal-caller.
Cockerille, who committed to Maryland before the Red-White Spring Game at Byrd Stadium last month, earned QB MVP honors over Eastern Christian's David Sills, who committed to USC as a seventh-grader. Cockerille told ESPN.com that he "had a mindset to be the best."
Many schools had recruited Cockerille as a safety, not a quarterback. Maryland saw potential in the pocket, and he committed to the Terrapins last month. Proving people wrong is his goal.
"People overlook me," Cockerille said. "That definitely motivates me to come out here and do my best and come out on top."
