WATCH FOR: Mike Sandusky, T; Jack Davis, G; Tom Selep, B; Frank Tamburello, B; Gene Alderton, C.

THE DOPE: The "Terrapins have it in guards, tackles and spades. Freshman Coach Tommy Mont inherited one of the best lines in football from Jim Tatum, and if anything the Terps will be better due to increased team speed. Al Beardsley is an exciting sophomore end who will bear watching, while Quarterback Frank Tamburello, Halfbacks Fred Hamilton and Jack Healy are proven veterans and potential stars. Mont says the 1956 version of the Terps will be "comparable with great Maryland teams of the past." The Maryland line from tackle to tackle shows tremendous strength with such standouts as Al Wharton, Jack Davis and. Mike Sandusky. Fullback Tom Selep caused biggest excitement of spring drills and could be key to power attack.
