    'Scary Terry' McLaurin warms up to nickname, just wants to play ball

    John Keim
    ESPN Staff Writer

    ASHBURN, Va. -- The nickname wasn't original and might not stick, but it was appropriate. Washington Redskins quarterback Case Keenum, so he claims, dubbed rookie receiver Terry McLaurin as "Scary Terry" in training camp.

    The moniker reached his high school, prompting his former coach at Cathedral High in Indianapolis, Rick Streiff, to chuckle.

    "We laughed a little bit," Streiff said, "because he's not scary anywhere except on the field."

    He has been scary to defenses because of his 4.35 speed in the 40-yard dash. McLaurin, who has 23 receptions in his five games, averages 17.74 yards per catch -- sixth highest in the NFL. Eight of his catches have gone for at least 20 yards. He's become the main bright spot in a 1-5 Redskins season, an unexpected start from a third-round pick ... who might have a nickname.

    "I won't get mad at it; I feel it could be more original," McLaurin said. "Other guys have had it. Terry Rozier. I don't look at myself like I have to have a nickname. I'm just going to go out and play ball. Some things that caught my eye is F1 McLaurin, a play on the words with the car. My homeboys call me T-Mac, Mac Made, Mac Mania. I'm friendly with that. It's kind of cool just to be living my dream."

    Another appropriate one: Touchdown Terry. After all, he has five of them.

    "I heard that a little bit in college, but shoot, I have to keep it going," McLaurin said, "it's not going to mean something if I don't keep making plays."

    But McLaurin isn't about nicknames; that's just something fun that comes with a taste of success. For McLaurin, it's been about the journey he traveled to make the plays that have earned him attention. This is how he went from a 5-foot-4, 125-pound high school freshman to a rookie with a nickname.

    Cont'd ...

    Buckeneye I lead, you follow.

    When you're getting compliments from Ocho on your footwork as a rookie, you know you're headed towards something special.

    Might've had the catch of the day and also held onto the ball after getting blasted on a slant route. Put him on the Patriots and he'd be having an all-pro year

    Re: NFL Draft: 2019 / Round: 3 / Pick: 76

    Just sayin': McLaurin was "a steal" as a 3rd round pick and the 12th wide receiver taken.
