Maryland football starts its season in 95 days. Until then, we’re profiling each and every player on the team.
Kicker Adam Greene finally got on the field in 2015, but not in the way anyone wanted. After Brad Craddock suffered a hand injury against Wisconsin, Greene was forced into placekicking duties. In four games, Greene made all 11 extra points he attempted and was 3-for-5 on field goals.

Year: Redshirt junior
High School: Broadneck High School
How Greene got to College Park
Greene was a two-star recruit and was recruited by former special teams coach Andre Powell. He attended Broadneck High School, where he set the Maryland state record for career field goals and was a two-time All-State selection. He committed to Maryland on Nov. 20, 2012.
One career highlight so far
Greene made his Maryland debut against Wisconsin last year, hitting a 44-yard field goal and two extra points in a 31-24 loss.
Greene enters 2016 with the daunting task of replacing former Lou Groza Award-winner and All-American Brad Craddock. It won't be an easy task, as Craddock left College Park third all time in career points and first in field goal percentage.
What a dream season might look like
The Terps offense vastly improves in 2016 under Walt Bell, and Greene comes out to finish off numerous drives.
