COLLEGE PARK, Md.--Maryland's defense is back on track after a midseason slump.
Hendy Garners More Honors
Hendy's pick-six set the tone for the Maryland's defense on Saturday as the Terps shutout West Virginia for the first time since 1999. Maryland held the Mountaineers to just 175 yards, including just 62 passing yards.
On Sunday, Hendy became the first Maryland player to win the Walter Camp National Defensive Player of the Week. On Monday, Hendy earned Atlantic Coast Conference Defensive Back of the Week honors, as announced by the league.
This is the third consecutive week a Maryland player has been honored by the ACC. Stefon Diggs was named ACC Receiver of the Week after a career-best 179 yards and a touchdown, in the Terps' 47-10 win over ODU. Both Dexter McDougle and Marcus Whitfield earned ACC Player of the Week honors after the Maryland's win over Connecticut, 32-21. McDougle, set a career-high with two interceptions, returning one 49 yards for a touchdown, while Whitfield recorded a career-high three sacks, including a safety, against the Huskies.
