After a monster seven-carry, 114-yard rushing performance against Buffalo last Saturday, redshirt freshman running back Roman Hemby was named the Big Ten Freshman of the Week.

In his first action as the Terps’ No. 1 running back, Hemby looked like the answer Maryland fans have been looking for in the backfield since Anthony McFarland Jr. got drafted in 2020.

He ran for two touchdowns that were both big-time runs, going for 33 and 70 yards, respectively. The redshirt freshman also posted a whopping 16.3 yards per carry, showing that he can get many big chunk plays to help out the passing game.

Hemby will look to keep his hot collegiate start going when the Terps take on Charlotte this Saturday.
