Antoine Brooks Earns B1G Weekly Honor

Sophomore defensive back Antoine Brooks, Jr. has been named Big Ten Conference Co-Specialist of the Week for his efforts in the Maryland football team's 51-41 win at No. 23 Texas Saturday.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. – Sophomore defensive back Antoine Brooks, Jr. has been named Big Ten Conference Co-Specialist of the Week for his efforts in the Maryland football team’s 51-41 win at No. 23 Texas Saturday.

Brooks made plays the entire day, but none was more important than his 71-yard touchdown return on a blocked field goal in the second quarter. Junior Derwin Gray set up the score with the block, leading to Brooks’ electric return down the sideline. The play gave Maryland a 21-7 advantage early in the second quarter.

It marks the first career conference honor for Brooks, who attended DuVal High School and is a native of Lanham, Md. Brooks also totaled four tackles, including a tackle for loss, in the win.

Brooks and the Terps return to action this Saturday when they host Towson for the home-opener at Noon. The game will be televised on Big Ten Network.
