COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) - Perry Hills threw 13 touchdown passes as captain of the Central Catholic High School football team last year and captured the Pennsylvania state wrestling championship at 195 pounds.
Those accomplishments are quite noteworthy, except perhaps when compared to his current athletic endeavor: Starting quarterback at the University of Maryland.
Ready or not, Hills will line up behind center Saturday as a true freshman when the Terrapins open the 2012 season against visiting William & Mary. Hills climbed to the top of the depth chart after junior C.J. Brown tore the ACL in his right knee during summer practice.
