Highschool Highlights:

How'd He Get to College Park?

Adam Greene was a four-year starter for Broadneck, setting quite a few records along the way.  Greene exhibited tremendous accuracy, converting a state record 27 field goals while kicking from the turf.  Accuracy is nothing without range, but Greene has that covered to -- he has a cannon for a right foot.  As a junior, Greene converted a 55-yarder and a 50-yarder (he's currently the county record holder) and an astonishing 85% of his kickoffs went for touchbacks.  In addition to setting records, Greene received the 2012 Wendy's High School Heisman Award for the State of Maryland, was a two time Maryland All-State First Team Consensus Placekicker, and was a team captain for his senior season.  To go along with his on-field exploits, Greene maintained a 4.5 GPA and graduated third in his high school class.  He committed to Maryland on November 20, 2012, over interest from Navy, Ohio, and Wake Forest.

Profiling the entire team

Brendan Magistro was the starting placekicker for C.M. Wright in his senior season.  He also played soccer and lacrosse in high school, and was recruited by Virginia Tech, Franklin & Marshall, and Wagner.  During his senior season, Magistro converted 6/7 field goal attempts, hitting a long of 47 yards.  He was honored as a first team all-county kicker, and played in the Maryland Crab Bowl and UCBAC All-Star game.  Magistro graduated from C.M. Wright with a 3.91 GPA, and he was also a member of the Spanish National Honors Society.

Magistro saw action in the 2012 season against Boston College and Georgia Tech.  He's batting a thousand so far, hitting is only field goal attempt, and converting 3 PATs.  He redshirted in 2013.

Nickname:

"Sunshine"; "Magisbro"

Career Highlight:

Greene: Committing to Maryland, and graduating 3rd in his high school class

Magistro: Hitting a 28 yard field goal against Boston College

Dream Season:

Winning the starting job from Brad Craddock

2014 Prospectus:

Randy Edsall praised Greene's progress throughout the spring.  His accuracy has improved as his technique has evolved.  "I definitely think i made a lot of progress this spring," said Greene after the spring game.  He made a 35 yard field goal for the White team, and also made several extra points.  Greene currently sits second on the depth chart behind Brad Craddock, and he plans to push the Aussie for the starting job in August.

In 2012, Nick Ferrara's injury and Brad Craddock's inconsistencies pressed Magistro into service after starting the year third on the depth chart.  Magistro finds himself in a similar position entering the 2014 season.  Although his chances of seeing action appear substantially less than in 2012, Magistro will push Greene and Craddock, making all three even better.
