COLLEGE PARK — Henry Poggi left Gilman for Michigan four years ago as an undersized defensive end before being switched to fullback in Ann Arbor.

On Saturday, the 6-4, 244-pound Poggi became a goal-line specialist for the Wolverines at Maryland Stadium.

Poggi, a fifth-year senior, scored the first touchdown of his college career on a 2-yard dive in the first quarter to give the Wolverines a 7-0 lead.

It was only the second rushing attempt of Poggi’s college career, who as a junior last season ran for four yards against Ohio State.

Poggi caught six passes for 45 yards last season while playing tight end and his father, former longtime Gilman coach Biff Poggi, was a member of Jim Harbaugh’s staff.
