Zach Abey, Ross Grimsley, Kingsley Opara and Shawne Merriman all joined Glenn Clark Radio this month.
"When we go into meetings or go into practice, we try to just dial in and focus on football. I'm a political science major, so I deal with a lot of overseas/different countries, politics in those countries. Some of my classes talk a lot about that. We talk about that among the brigade, in our companies and stuff. It's something that we signed up for. So I don't think anyone is scared. It's just the fact that once we graduate, we're probably going to have to do something over there, something overseas somewhere."
- Navy quarterback Zach Abey Sept. 27 on whether the crisis with North Korea impacts Navy football players
"No. Knowing what they have and what they don't have. ... The big talk is [Orioles pitching prospect] Hunter Harvey, but he's not ready for the major leagues and you would be putting another starting pitcher in the same position that [Dylan] Bundy has been in for the last couple of years. ... [Miguel] Castro may be a guy, but here's a guy that's done a really good job out of the bullpen."
- Former Orioles pitcher Ross Grimsley Sept. 20 on whether the Orioles have any options for their 2018 rotation in house besides Kevin Gausman and Dylan Bundy
"It's not hard to get a feel of Coach [DJ] Durkin. If you play hard, if you love life, you're going to be successful and you're going to get along with him very well. That's how Coach Durkin sees things. So if you just love football and you just love life in general and have a good energy and vibe about you, Coach Durkin and you will be the best of friends."
- Maryland defensive lineman Kingsley Opara Sept. 20 on how things have clicked with head coach DJ Durkin for players like him who were brought to Maryland by former coach Randy Edsall
"It's funny. When he came in and you see Eric Weddle, and he doesn't look like a football player. He doesn't. If you saw Eric Weddle on the street and he was just dressed in street clothes, you wouldn't think he was one of the best safeties in the National Football League at all. When he got [to San Diego] ... he came up and made a play and kind of laid somebody out. I got up and I took my helmet off and I ran around practice tapping everybody, 'Could you see that? Did you see that?' I was so shocked of just his deceptiveness as a football player. He's one of the most instinctive players -- not just defensive backs -- instinctive players that I've ever had the chance to play around, and he'll be a Hall of Famer one day."
- Former Terps and NFL pass rusher Shawne Merriman Sept. 27 on his memories of his former Chargers teammate and current Ravens safety Eric Weddle
