MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- Ken Mastrole became the first freshman in Maryland football history to start at quarterback last night, but he lasted only two series before coach Mark Duffner replaced him with Brian Cummings.A redshirt freshman from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Mastrole was given the starting assignment just minutes before the Terps' 13-0 loss at West Virginia. After pre-game warm-ups, Duffner announced that Cummings would start, but changed his mind on the way into the locker room."There wasn't a specific plan," Duffner said.

CLEMSON, S.C. -- Freshman quarterback Randall Jones represents the future of a Maryland program that wants to forget the recent past.Junior quarterback Ken Mastrole certainly has more ties to the past than to the future.Yesterday, Maryland coach Ron Vanderlinden opted for the past, calling on Mastrole to replace Jones early in the fourth quarter when the Terps still had a chance to beat Clemson in Death Valley for the first time in 13 years.The move didn't work for the second-year coach, and Clemson went on to shut out Maryland, 23-0, ending a four-game losing streak for the Tigers in this battle of Atlantic Coast Conference teams that were in desperate need of a win."

COLLEGE PARK -- A funny thing happened to Maryland football on the way to the 1998 season.Trey Evans decided that a view from the sidelines wasn't his destiny after all.Evans was one of two quarterbacks the Terps signed in 1995. Ken Mastrole, the other one, emerged as the backup the last two seasons, and when Brian Cummings' run as a three-year starter ended, Mastrole was supposed to move up and become No. 1.Evans, however, had other ideas."I did not anticipate Trey being in the mix, but he has put himself there," coach Ron Vanderlinden said.

COLLEGE PARK -- They came to see a battle of two Maryland quarterbacks last night, junior veteran Ken Mastrole and elusive freshman Randall Jones.Mastrole once again showed off his strong right arm and Jones was at his scrambling best at times, as the two players alternated on virtually an equal basis throughout the game.Call it a draw in their fight to be No. 1.But it was explosive tailback LaMont Jordan and slender sophomore field-goal kicker Brian Kopka who stole the show as the Terps outclassed Temple, 30-20, in a final tuneup at Byrd Stadium for seven straight ACC opponents.

COLLEGE PARK -- Ken Mastrole was looking for a new start in a new football environment three years ago when he left sunny Fort Lauderdale for the University of Maryland and the hustle and bustle of the Baltimore-Washington metropolitan area.A 6-foot-3, 230-pound quarterback, he already had been offered a scholarship by the University of Miami in his junior year of high school and there was some pressure from family and friends to stay close to home.But Mastrole yearned to travel out of state to a schoolwhere he could take advantage of his ability to throw the ball.

Terrapins coach Ron Vanderlinden has said Mastrole is his starter right now.However, don't pencil him in just yet.Mastrole, a backup to Brian Cummings last year, is the only quarterback with game experience but will be tested by three other scholarship players including redshirt freshman Gil Harris, who impressed Vanderlinden in practice last year.Yesterday marked the Terps' first spring practice and Vanderlinden didn't deflect the possibility of a quarterback battle.

Whether he starts or comes off the bench, Ken Mastrole will be considerably better prepared for his second taste of serious college action than he was for his first.Mastrole, a redshirt freshman from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., entered August camp as Maryland's third-team quarterback. He moved up to No. 2 after an intrasquad scrimmage and got a handful of snaps in the first two games, but mostly he watched while Brian Cummings ran the first-team offense.When Cummings left a Sept. 14 game at Virginia with a slight shoulder separation, Mastrole was thrown to a savvy Virginia defense, and the result was a predictable 21-3 loss.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- What's Maryland without a quarterback controversy?Maryland won its first two games by 24 points, but second-team quarterback Ken Mastrole saw scant action in romps over Northern Illinois and Alabama-Birmingham. A shoulder injury to Brian Cummings forced Mastrole into the Virginia game yesterday, and coach Mark Duffner was asked if he regretted not giving the redshirt freshman more playing time in the first two games."Maybe we would've been better," Duffner said, "but this is the situation we faced today."

COLLEGE PARK -- No one should have been surprised yesterday when Maryland coach Ron Vanderlinden refused to divulge who would be his starting quarterback for Saturday's 6 p.m. home date with winless Temple.Even if Vanderlinden has made a decision between junior drop-back passer Ken Mastrole and freshman option quarterback Randall Jones, he would not tell the opposition until later in the week.There is no need to give the Owls a lot of time to prepare.However, Jones did dominate most of Vanderlinden's comments the quarterback situation during a weekly news conference because that's who most of the questions centered around.

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- Maryland's football rebuilding project received a massive setback last night in front of a hostile West Virginia crowd that watched Amos Zereoue recharge his Heisman Trophy batteries and send the No. 19 Mountaineers on their way to a 42-20 victory.Zereoue bounced back from a less-than-thrilling performance two weeks ago in a season-opening loss to No. 1 Ohio State with some scintillating runs and softened the Maryland defense for a spectacular passing performance by junior quarterback Marc Bulger.

Maryland's depth at quarterback improved earlier this week, when the Terps received an oral commitment from Floridian Ken Mastrole.Mastrole, 6 feet 3 and 215 pounds, led Cardinal Gibbons High in Fort Lauderdale to an 11-2 record and the quarterfinals of the Florida 4A tournament this season. He completed 95 of 176 passes for 1,781 yards and 12 touchdowns."He's got a gun for an arm and good quickness," said Don Marino, Mastrole's high school coach. "We use some of the run-and-shoot stuff that Maryland uses, and I think it's a real good fit for Ken."

COLLEGE PARK -- Honk if you've quarterbacked Maryland.Keon Russell is the sixth player to pilot the Terps the past three seasons. Two years ago, Scott Milanovich, Kevin Foley and Brian Cummings got turns. When Cummings sprained an ankle in the 1995 opener against Tulane, Orlando Strozier was the emergency fill-in.Redshirt freshman Ken Mastrole has gotten two starts in place of the injured Cummings this season, and when Mastrole fractured his right collarbone in seven places at Duke, Russell got his chance.
