Local ‘24 Lineman Recaps Pair of Visits to Maryland

Loyola Blakefield (MD) offensive lineman Trevor Szymanski made it to Maryland for the last two home games against Michigan State and Purdue to give the in-state tackle another positive experience around the staff.

“It’s always super nice going up there. It’s stinks it was a loss but it was good getting up there,” Szymanski told Inside the Black and Gold. Szymanski has gotten a chance to see both his area and position coach on both trips, but it’s his observations of the offensive line that stick out above all.

“I think Maryland’s been, not really a surprising team, but they can compete with anyone. They run the ball really well and I like the offensive line, they do a really good job opening up the running game. When I watch the games, I only watch the positions I’ve played. The left tackle, he’s really good. He’s really good.”

Szymanski also got a chance to go into the locker room after the win over Michigan State. “After Michigan State, we got a chance to go and see what it’s like. AJ went up to talk to Billy Edwards and CJ [Dippre] so I got a chance to talk with them.”

Maryland views Szymanski as a guard target while his 6-foot-5 frame has made him a prototypical high school tackle. The trenches have been a positive for Loyola Blakefield so far this season and this weekend will be another test when they travel to Pallotti, where they’ll be tested by Maryland commit Daniel Wingate and 2024 four-star linebacker Gabriel Williams.

His upcoming game has his full attention with Trevor looking to close out his junior season, but there’s no doubt that it’s Maryland who is the team to beat moving forward.

“I really like Maryland right now. I’m trying to focus on the season but obviously going up to Maryland is cool. I’m probably going to wait until next spring or summer.”
