BTN is profiling Maryland football’s Will Likely, and it looks worth your time

This is the Maryland Minute, a short story followed by a roundup of Terps-related news.

More than anyone else, Will Likely is probably be the face of the Maryland football program. The Big Ten Network did a big piece on his upbringing, which they’re airing on Oct. 19.

This looks pretty well-done. Here are a couple clips:

Likely hunted rabbits when he was young, just so he’d have food to eat. Sure seems like the agility he learned there helped him get to where he is now.

This look at Likely’s hometown is a much more harrowing story. “The Muck” has produced many NFL players, but families that don’t get that golden ticket live hard lives.

This season, Likely’s been the focus of Maryland’s promotional efforts.

This looks like it’ll be worth tuning in for.
