Terrapin Club Donor Featured in Post

Longtime Terrapin Club donor Joel Ryerson is featured in the Washington Post’s October 16, 2012 edition for his dedicated support for Maryland Athletics.

Joel has been a presence at Maryland athletic events ranging from football to field hockey and has attended practices regularly for over 30 years.

As Coach Randy Edsall told the Post:

“I’ve never experienced anything like it as an assistant coach or as a head coach,” Edsall says. “I’ve never been around anybody who has been that loyal, to come to practice, to be a part of the program — to be a part of the family, really. For 30 years? That’s just unheard of.”

University of Maryland’s super fan thrives on 30 years of dedication to the Terps


100-Year-Old Terp Honored

Though three jobs and an entire course load prevented Stan Lore from playing baseball for the University of Maryland in the early 1930s, nothing has stopped him from avidly supporting the Terrapins since; not even age.

Lore, now 100, attended Saturday’s football game against Wake Forest and was honored as the Terrapin Club Donor of the Game for his longtime support of Maryland athletics. This is an apt tribute to a diehard fan that has supported the Terrapins for well over half a century.

“Whether I was good, bad or indifferent baseball-wise, I don’t know,” Lore told Dan Steinberg in an article in The Washington Post. “But I’ve been interested in Maryland sports ever since I started there.”

Lore’s support of Maryland athletics extends beyond football, for which he has owned season tickets for over 30 years. He also reads about or watches every game for every Maryland sport that he can from his home in Western Pennsylvania.

“I don’t root for Penn State or Pitt or anybody else,” Lore added in the Post article. “I’m a diehard Maryland Terp.”
