PUNT RETURNER STEVE SUTER SETS ACC RECORDS
"Kick It To Suter" becomes rallying cry for Terrapin fans
You remember Steve Suter. How could you not? The former Terps standout returned six punts for touchdowns in 2002 and 2003.
But I’m guessing what you best remember is this -- he never called for a fair catch.
That’s a remarkable statistic when you consider that he has more career returns (121), more career yards (1,271) and more punt return touchdowns (the six) than any other Terps player.
Suter said he believed it was better to fall forward for a yard or two -- often much more, of course -- than surrender by signaling a fair catch.
“It was probably more stupid than it was brave,” he said.
