Former Bullis quarterback Dwayne Haskins, Jr. has been honored by the Big Ten Conference.
Haskins, a former All-Sentinel quarterback at Bullis, was named the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week.
Making his first career start, Haskins threw for 313 yards and five touchdowns Saturday to lead Ohio State to a 77-31 victory over Oregon State before 102, 169 fans at Ohio Stadium in Columbus, Ohio.
Behind Haskins, the Buckeyes jumped out to a 21-7 first quarter advantage and led 42-14 at halftime.
Haskins, a sophomore who played behind J.T. Barrett last season, registered the football program’s 30th 300-yard passing game in school history.
What’s more, Haskins’ outing against Oregon State marked the best first-start performance statistically by an Ohio State quarterback.
Haskins completed his first eight passes and led the Buckeyes to touchdowns on his first seven possessions.
The 6-foot-3, 218-pound dynamo completed passes to seven different receivers and threw touchdown passes to four receivers, including a pair to senior captain Terry McLaurin, who compiled four receptions for a personal best 121 receiving yards.
Haskins also carried the ball twice for 24 yards including a 17-yard scamper.
“Dwayne can run,” Ohio State acting head coach Ryan Day said. “And there’s going to be times when he’s going to need to run. But sometimes just kind of based on what we’re seeing in terms of what the defense has given us. He’s still a threat with his legs. He’s obviously a gifted passer and he does that really, really well.”
In a battle of Philadelphia college programs, Rockville native Elijah Trent had a late interception to help seal Villanova’s 19-17 win over Temple at Lincoln Financial Field on Saturday. Trent, a Villanova freshman defensive back, helped seal the Wildcats’ victory over their crosstown rival and FBS opponent.
During his senior campaign at Wootton, Trent earned first team All-Sentinel honors at wide receiver. He finished the season with 76 receptions for 1,203 yards and scored 14 touchdowns for the Patriots.
Lamont Jordan, the University of Maryland’s all-time leading rusher and a nine-year NFL veteran, has been named the new color analyst for the Maryland Sports Radio Network football broadcasts.
Jordan, a Prince George’s County native, replaces Tim Strachan who decided to step down to spend more time with his family. Strachan, a Montgomery County native, spent 22 years broadcasting Maryland football on the radio with Johnny Holliday.
“It has been an absolute honor and joy to sit alongside Tim Strachan for the last 22 years,” said Holliday. “Tim’s not only a good broadcaster, but also a great person and a family friend. He’ll be missed in the booth, but I know Tim’s excited about spending more time with his family.”
Jordan, a newly announced member of the Maryland Athletics 2018 Hall of Fame class, ranks first all-time in Terrapin football history in various categories including career rushing yards (4,147), single-season rushing yards (1,632), single-game rushing yards (306), single-season rushing touchdowns (16) and career rushing attempts (807).
