There will be some new artwork on display when Maryland begins its 2013 football season against Florida International Saturday afternoon. The school put up new “photo murals” in the West end zone of Byrd Stadium, featuring the 11 former players who were named consensus All-Americans, plus the 1953 national championship team.

The 11 players include Bob Ward, Dick Modzelewski, Jack Scarbath, Bob Pellegrini, Gary Collins, Randy White, Joe Campbell, Dale Castro, J.D. Maarleveld and E.J. Henderson.

The school plans to put up additional new graphics later this fall, in conjunction with its annual reunion event.
