Maryland quarterback Tyrrell Pigrome is ready to make the most of another starting opportunity

When Tyrrell Pigrome found out that he wouldn’t be the starting quarterback for Maryland football this August, coming up second to Josh Jackson, he admits he was upset.

He could have easily sought out a transfer — it’s becoming increasingly popular in today’s era of college football — but the redshirt junior instead decided to focus on improving himself.

“To fall short on that really hurt,” Pigrome said. “But at the end of the day, you’ve just got to be a better person for the team. Just be a leader, always motivate the team, make sure you stay up through the good and the bad.
