Injured Strozier to miss spring drills

February 16, 1994|By Special to The Sun

COLLEGE PARK -- Maryland defensive back Orlando Strozier will miss spring practice while recovering from surgery for a torn anterior cruciate ligament, coach Mark Duffner said in a statement released yesterday.

Strozier, one of the Atlantic Coast Conference's leaders in interceptions and punt returns as a freshman, should be ready for the 1994 season, the statement said.

Seven other athletes will miss practice to concentrate on academics during the spring. Defensive ends Tim Watson and Jason Brown, occasional starters as freshmen, will not practice, along with sophomore outside linebacker Cleveland Everhart (an occasional starter) and freshman defensive backs Andre Martin, Keno Shawell and Darrick Rather. Ron White, a freshman offensive tackle who had an appendectomy during the 1993 season, also will concentrate on academics.

Spring practice will be held March 28 through April 23.
