The Maryland football family will honor its seniors on Saturday in the regular season finale against Rutgers at noon. The Terrapins have had a touch and go season amidst the coronavirus pandemic and will play just its fifth game — the first since Nov. 28.

It’s a senior day unlike any other, with no fans crowding Capital One Stadium for the typical send-off. Seniors Jake Funk, Cherokee Glasgow, Johnny Jordan, Antwaine Richardson, Tyler Rockhill, Zach Roski and Shaq Smith will all be honored.

Funk has enjoyed a nice season as the starting running back for the Terrapins. Hailing from Gaithersburg, Maryland, Funk has compiled 336 rushing yards with a yards per carry average of 7.8. He particularly shined in the overtime victory over Minnesota on Oct. 30, rushing for a career-high 221 yards. Heading into Saturday’s contest, Funk has 788 career rushing yards, 101 receiving yards and 12 total touchdowns, despite two torn ACLs.

On the defensive side of the ball, Richardson racked up a season-high nine tackles in his last game against No. 12 Indiana, bringing his season total up to 18. Across his Maryland career thus far, which included serving as somewhat of a student coach with a torn ACL last year, Richardson has compiled 77 tackles in 22 games.

Jordan, who was named a captain for the game against Rutgers, has been a staple in the Terps’ offensive line this fall after opting back into the season in September.

Defensive lineman Glasgow has also contributed for the Terps, stacking up four total tackles in two games this season.
