Former Maryland defensive back Darnell Savage has been impressive during Senior Bowl practice this week, and earned some recognition for his effort.
Savage was one of four participants named the Senior Bowl Defensive Practice Players of the Week. He was the lone B1G player to receive that kind of praise on either side of the football.
Congratulations to our Reese’s Senior Bowl Defensive Practice Players of the Week:
