Three Terps To Play In All-Star Games
COLLEGE PARK, Md.-- Three Maryland seniors have been invited to participate in two postseason all-star games. Wide receiver Geroy Simon will play in the Kelly Tires Blue-Gray Classic on Christmas Day in Montgomery, Ala., while safeties Chad Scott and A.J. Johnson will play in the Senior Bowl on Jan. 18 in Mobile, Ala.
Simon, who finished second in school history in career receptions (185) and reception yardage (2,059) will attempt to become the third Terp since 1992 to be named MVP of the Blue-Gray Classic. Maryland quarterbacks John Kaleo and Scott Milanovich accomplished the task in 1992 and 1996, respectively.
Scott's five interceptions this year placed him second in the conference and 14th in the nation. Johnson's 12 career picks place him sixth in school history.
Also, ABC will air a mini documentary on Tim Strachan at halftime of the Blue-Gray Classic. The feature will cover the daily challenges Strachan faces as a quadriplegic while attending to his responsibilities as Maryland's student coach and sideline reporter.
