Extending a Thank You to All of Maryland's Seniors

Today's the last real football game ever for most of Maryland's seniors, and the last game in a Maryland uniform for all of them. Some of them have been great their entire time, some less so, but all of them have had amazing moments and represented the University of Maryland well and proudly. Here's a big thank you to all the seniors, and a quick look at their best moments in their time here.

Nolan Carroll (CB from Green Cove Spring, Fl.)
Greatest Moment: He started last year in the Roady's Humanitarian Bowl against Nevada. He had seven tackles and two PBUs, giving Maryland fans a snapshot of what was to come. Unfortunately, he was injured against Cal in the opener, and didn't play again all year.

Phil Costa (C from Moorestown, NJ)
Greatest Moment: He's a lineman, so it's tough to pinpoint a specific game, but last year was a good one for Costa, who found his niche as a rotation guy at C and G. He was at his best in some big time games.

Deege Galt (DE from Silver Spring, MD)
Greatest Moment: He had 2.5 sacks this year, the best of which was arguably against Middle Tennessee St. He tackled Dwight Dasher 10 yards behind the line of scrimmage on 3rd down to knock the Blue Raiders out of field goal range and save 3 points.

Tommy Galt (TE from Silver Spring, MD)
Greatest Moment: Galt wasn't used a ton this year, but he played a major role in the Clemson win with 3 catches, one first down, and 22 total yards.

Jared Harrell (DE from Milton, Mass.)
Greatest Moment: Harrell had an up-and-down year this year, but he made the most of his opportunities last season. Most notably, a forced fumble against Clemson last season set up an Obi Egekeze FG in Maryland's 3 point win over the Tigers that turned the season around.

Travis Ivey (DT from Riverdale, MD)
Greatest Moment: Last year's loss against FSU wasn't good for many people, but it was nice for Ivey, who notched four tackles and a forced fumble in his best game in a Terps uni.

Corey Jackson (FB from Morgantown, WVU)
Greatest Moment: The criminally under-used FB had his best game, and best moment, in his freshman year in the Champs Sports Bowl. He had a 1-yard TD rush, his only at Maryland, and a 23-yard reception, as well as a punishing block that never showed up on the stat sheet. He even had a long, 20+ yard run that got negated by a penalty.

Jamari McCollough (S from Baltimore, MD)
Greatest Moment: Who can forget the game-sealing INT against North Carolina? It was one of the most emotion-filled games I can remember, and it will take me a long time to forget that play.

Terrell Skinner (S from St. Petersburg, FL)
Greatest Moment: Skinner shocked everyone last year by being one of the best players on Maryland's defense. His first career start was against Delaware, and he made six tackles, including one for loss, and a huge interception in the fourth quarter that saved the game.

Richard Taylor (CB from Centreville, VA)
Greatest Moment: Taylor's the eldest player on Maryland as a sixth year senior, and he's never gotten much PT. This year, though, he had a huge INT against N.C. St. in the late second quarter in the end zone to keep Maryland in it and change the momentum before heading into the locker room.

Chris Turner (QB from Simi Valley, CA)
Greatest Moment: This one was easy: Turner made his legacy by going in cold to the Rutgers game for the injured Jordan Steffy and leading an upset of the top-ten Scarlet Knights. This will double as LaQuan Williams greatest moment, too.

Anthony Wiseman (CB from Silver Hill, MD)
Greatest Moment: Wiseman has had an embattled senior season, but he came up big against Middle Tennessee State with two tackles for loss and seven tackles.
