Jeshaun Jones Scores Three TD's In Standout Debut With Terps

After an emotional offseason surrounding the death of Jordan McNair, the Maryland Terrapin football team took down No. 23 Texas for the second straight year, inching out a 34-29 win at FedEx Field on Saturday afternoon. 

Plenty of questions surrounded the Terps heading into a new football season with interim head coach Matt Canada at the helm, but they honored their former teammate in the best way possible, with a win.

And in the process, Jeshaun Jones was a standout star. 

The freshman wide receiver had quite the debut. He threw, caught and ran for a touchdown, all in the first half of the Terps' win. He became only the fourth true freshman to do so in the last 20+ years. 

The former three-star recruit has already made his mark on a national stage in just one game and gives redshirt freshamn quarterback Kasim Hill a huge boost in the passing game after losing top receiver D.J. Moore to the NFL. 

The Terps will look to start off 2-0 on the season next Saturday night at Bowling Green. For more news on the Terps, make sure to listen to 105.7 the Fan on
