Jake Funk broke the Maryland state record for career touchdowns when he was a student at Damascus– he had 57 during his senior year alone.
His college career hasn’t worked out the same way. He spent his first two years seeing limited action and his last two seasons ended early due to injury, after he tore the same ACL in back to back seasons.
The fifth-year Senior spent five days a week rehabbing with his brother, Josh Funk– a physical therapist who founded Rehab 2 Perform and has two locations in Montgomery County and one in Frederick County.
While the Terps didn’t fare too well in their opener against Northwestern, Jake Funk started at running back and rushed for 35 yards on 6 carries and caught 2 balls out of the backfield for 9 yards.
As Maryland works towards getting things right on the field, it’s great to see Jake Funk back on it.
