Maryland football freshman Braeden Wisloski was named Big Ten Special Teams Player of the Week, the conference announced Monday.

Wisloski helped spur Maryland’s comeback against Virginia last Friday with a 98-yard kickoff return touchdown, the first of the Terps’ 42 consecutive unanswered points. The score was the first of Wisloski’s collegiate career and the first time a Maryland player returned a kickoff for a touchdown since Javon Leake did so in 2019.

Wisloski is the first Maryland player to be named Big Ten Special Teams Player of the Week honors since kicker Chad Ryland earned the honor in the final week of 2022 regular season.
