It's time for our second Testudo Times Terp of the Week poll! Thanks to all of you who voted over the course of the last week. There were 134 votes in total and Testudo Times' inaugural Terp of the Week is Adreene` Elliott of Maryland Volleyball. She won in a landslide, piling up an astounding 45 percent of the vote.
This week's competition will feature Football's Will Likely, Men's Soccer's Sebastian Elney, Women's Soccer's Alex Anthony, Volleyball's Liz Twilley, and Field Hockey's Emma Rissinger.
Will Likely, Football
Will Likely provided the highlight of the game in the the season opening win against Richmond, running back a punt 67 yards for a touchdown. He also set a Big Ten record for punt return yards in a game with 233 punt return yards. That record was set by Nile Kinnick, an Iowa Hawkeye, who won the 1939 Heisman Trophy.
ICYMI: @umterps' William Likely just had another #B1G punt return. http://t.co/sbHnAFCxOK— Maryland on BTN (@MarylandOnBTN) September 6, 2015
Ironically, Will Likely will likely get the opportunity to return some punts at Kinnick Stadium when the Terps travel to Iowa City to play Iowa later this season.
Sebastian Elney, Men's Soccer
The magic moment wouldn't have happened without Tsubasa Endoh's ability to keep the play alive but Elney's header provided the golden goal to beat top-ranked UCLA, 2-1, in overtime in front of 8,500 screaming fans at Ludwig Field on Saturday night.
ICYMI: What's better than topping No. 1? Doing it in dramatic fashion like @MarylandMSoccer did here. http://t.co/KLtFeTnD7p— Big Ten Network (@BigTenNetwork) September 5, 2015
Alex Anthony, Women's Soccer
Anthony leads the Terps in scoring with four goals and she scored the go-ahead goal in the second half to beat SMU in Dallas on Sunday.
Liz Twilley, Volleyball
Twilley, a freshman, led Maryland to a 4-0 record at the DC Classic over the weekend and was named the D.C. Classic Tournament MVP. She currently leads the Terps with 79 kills and she has been an important part of a team that is off to an 8-0 start to the season. It has been a decade since Maryland Volleyball started a year that well.
Emma Rissinger, Field Hockey
Rissinger was one of the lone bright spots over the weekend for Field Hockey as they dropped overtime matches to #13 Boston College and fifth-ranked Duke. Rissinger scored goals in both games, including a goal at the buzzer against Duke to send the game into overtime.
