Scout.com: You really stood out at the Crab Bowl practices. Tell me about that experience?
Stinebaugh: I had a lot of fun. Going against those guys, the competition. During the high school season you can look at the schedule and say this will be an easy game. But at that game you have some great athletes. All those guys have a chance to play D-IA or D-IAA, or in college somewhere. There was a lot of talent and it was a lot of fun.
Scout.com: Because of the level of competition there, was it the first step into college competition and provide some momentum for you as you go into your freshman year at Maryland?
Stinebaugh: It definitely helps. Going against all the great athletes on the field helped me assess where I’m at and make sure I’m up to the challenge.
Scout.com: What made you decide on Maryland?
Stinebaugh: The family atmosphere. The coaches are down to earth. They tell you the truth not just what you want to hear. Living so close made it easy for my family and friends to come down to a great atmosphere at Byrd Stadium.
Scout.com: You have played multiple positions in high school. What position will you play at Maryland?
Stinebaugh: I am going to start at h-back and then when I bulk up I may move to a true f or tight end. It is still up in the air. A little slot, a little h and maybe some tight end.
