COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- Of the 15 seniors to play in their final game in Byrd Stadium Saturday afternoon, reserve wide receiver Tejiri Ehrie is one of the more obscure names.

The Nigerian born Ehrie moved to the U.S. when he was eight and played soccer. He didn't play football until he was a sophomore at Arundle High School. At the urging of his brother, who went on to be an All-America tackle at Bowie State, Ehrie excelled enough in high school to get a chance at Frostburg State. After two-seasons at the small Western Maryland school, he decided to transfer and walk-on with the Maryland football team.

Ehrie's successes has been limited to the scout team. Ehrie will graduate with a degree in Kinesiology and is planning for a career in sports medicine as an athletic trainer.
