Maryland Athletics announced the launch of Terrapin Club+, a new online streaming platform featuring exclusive video content and programming for Terrapin Club members. Terrapin Club+ (TC+) debuts today with a free preview of two shows: “The Johnny Holliday Show” and “Behind the Play.”
TC+ is part of the reinvented Terrapin Club, and one of three new benefits along with ONE MARYLAND magazine, which launched this fall, and the Terrapin Club Backstage Pass, which provides members exclusive access and behind-the-scenes experiences.
Monday’s debut/premiere of “The Johnny Holliday Show” will showcase Darryl Hill, the first Black athlete at the University of Maryland and the first Black football player in the ACC and the South. The Hall of Fame Voice of the Terrapins sits down with Hill to discuss never-been-heard before stories about his journey to Maryland and what breaking the color barrier meant for sports, the university and society.
The first episode of “Behind the Play” focuses on the most famous moment in Maryland women’s basketball history, “the Shot” by Kristi Toliver, which propelled the Terrapins to the 2006 national championship. The two-time WNBA champion breaks down the execution of that legendary play and how it set the stage for a standout career in college and the pros.
TC+ is slated to premiere two more shows in December as part of the free preview.
“Game Changers” is a documentary series chronicling the stories behind Terrapins who have overcome adversity, blazed trails, recovered from tragedy or made an everlasting mark during their time in College Park. Among the subjects scheduled to be featured are Ayinde “Ace” Eley, who recovered from a brain condition then starred on the Terps football team; Walt Williams, a local high school legend who helped change the course of the men’s basketball program’s history.
The show “Home” will follow the stories of current Maryland student-athletes as they show off what makes living in Maryland and the DMV so special. December’s rollout will feature Rainelle Jones of the Terps’ volleyball program as she shows off Oxon Hill and National Harbor in Prince George’s County.
The fifth original show, “Anyone Can,” will start in January and showcase Maryland student-athletes from one sport competing in another to see how successfully they can perform. Can a basketball player flip like a gymnast? Hit a fastball? Drive a golf ball 300 yards?
Following the free preview during November and December, TC+ will be available exclusively to Terrapin Club members (at the Silver level and above) starting in January with five new shows premiering each month. For more information, visit https://umterps.com/reinvented.
