Milanovich is the most decorated, and perhaps the most talented, Terrapin quarterback of all time. Despite a brief controversy and subsequent suspension, he still holds the vast majority of Maryland passing records, including career yards (7,301), touchdowns (49) and completions (650).

Bias was a rare basketball talent. Drawing comparisons to basketball legend Michael Jordan, his ability to shoot and rebound made him an elite forward. He was named the 1986 ACC Athlete of the Year and the ACC Player of the Year two consecutive seasons ('85 and '86). Tragically, he died of a drug overdose the night after being drafted by the Boston Celtics.

Jones was an instrumental player on the historic 1953 Terps football squad. During that season, the starting right tackle bolstered a team that had a perfect 10-0 regular season and led a defense that only allowed 31 points. That team managed to record six shutouts, and thanks largely to Jones's skill, only Georgia was able to score more than six points in a game. Jones was named the 1953 Outstanding College Lineman and earned All-America honors.

Adams smashed both college and NCAA records. She is the all-time collegiate scoring and assists leader (445, 178). In terms of Terrapin records, she ranks first in career and single-season points, goals and assists. Adams, a three-time All-America and National Player of the Year, scored more goals and assists in 2001 than any other player in NCAA Division I. The Australian native is now back in College Park as the team's Associate Head Coach.

The two-time All-America quarterback set 17 school records as a Terp. He led his team to the 1983 ACC championship and into the Tangerine Bowl the same year. The lefthander was a four-time Pro Bowl player and was named the NFL's MVP in '88.

The first-ever Terrapin to have her number raised at the Comcast Center while still active, Langhorne owns the Terrapin records for scoring (17.3 points per game) and rebounding (9.4 per game). She is the only Maryland player ever to win four All-ACC honors, to be named the ACC Player of the Week three times, to score 2,000 points and to grab 1,000 boards.

The 1995 National Player of the Year is one of the best basketball players to ever wear Maryland's red, white, and black. As a student-athlete, Smith was a first-team All-America and in 1995 he became the third sophomore to be named ACC Player of the Year. As a Terrapin, Smith averaged 20.1 points, 10.7 rebounds, 2.9 blocks and 1.0 assists in 64 games.

Randy White (football, 1971-74)
One of the quickest defensive linemen to ever take the field, White's was a natural talent. In 1974, he earned a host of honors: the Outland and Lombardi trophies, ACC Player of the Year, first-team All-America, Delaware (his home state) Athlete of the Year and Philadelphia Sportswriters Association Amateur Athlete of the Year. He has been inducted into both the National Football Foundation and Pro Football Halls of Fame.

Dixon rules the Terrapin basketball history books. He led Maryland to its first NCAA Championship in 2001, where he was named MOP of the Final Four. Dixon's individual statistics are incredible, as he is the only player in NCAA history to record over 2,000 points, 300 steals and 200 three-point field goals. He owns the school's career records in scoring (2,269), 3-point field goal attempts (615), 3-point field goals made (239), field goals attempted (1,713) and consecutive games played in a career (141). As a senior, he was named first-team All-America and the 2002 ACC Player of the Year.
