How he got to College Park
Sutton spent his freshman season in 2014 playing for Towson, but transferred to Maryland after not playing that year. In 2015, he was forced to sit out the entire season due to the NCAA’s transfer rules. Finally, Sutton played in his first game last year, taking over as Maryland’s primary kickoff specialist in October. However, while he’s a kicker, Sutton has never attempted a field goal after being far down on the kicking depth chart last season.

Last season, Sutton took 37 kickoffs from Oct. 1 on, averaging 58.
