BC Confident Run Game Will Return To Form in 2023

March 29, 2023

Image courtesy of BC Athletics To say the BC run game was lackluster last year would be unfair to lackluster things. The running game was downright non-existent last season. For so many years, the Eagles may not have had much, but they always had tough, physical, hard-nosed running game. Since head coach Jeff Hafley has arrived that hasn’t always been the case. Now, with a revamped O-line room and a…


Hafley happy with where Eagles are offensively following first scrimmage

March 28, 2023

As the spring progresses, BC is getting more and more comfortable with what the operation will be like on offense in 2023. This past Saturday, the Eagles had a light scrimmage and the run game in particular is something head coach Jeff Hafley is most pleased with so far. With more depth on the offensive line, new offensive coordinators Steve Shimko and Rob Chudzinski already comfortable with players on that…

March 25, 2023

CHESTNUT HILL- Boston College held its annual Pro Day yesterday at the Heights. Seven of the eight participants at the event played for the Eagles at some point in the last four years.

White & Kurker make most of return to BC for Pro Day

March 24, 2023

It’s been a long, strange journey for both Kobay White and Cliff Kurker, but it’s funny how things work out. Both guys were at Boston College for the Eagles’ Pro Day on Friday and both put on a show for scouts, despite no longer being part of the BC program. White of course finished his career at Maine last season, while Kurker – a former Needham standout in lacrosse and…


For the Burton family, Boston College Pro Day provides unique opportunity

March 24, 2023

CHESTNUT HILL – Steve Burton has seen and covered every big event in this area when it comes to sports, but the event he was at Friday might’ve been harder to watch than anything else he’s seen during his time with WBZ. Burton’s son Austin – who began his young football career with Newton South and has had stops at UCLA and Purdue along the way – was able to…


Former Harvard Man turned Eagle looks forward to leading in 2023

March 23, 2023

Alex Washington has been in the area for quite some time now, so the transition once he became an Eagle has been easy. In fact, Washington has the luxury of eating at some of his favorite spots in town still. Usually, transfers have an entire new city and team to get used to, but Washington made things easier on himself by staying in Massachusetts. The recent graduate transfer defensive back…

The meeting happened at Rutgers when Greg Schiano was the head coach, but the most stunning revelation to come out of it was the role Boston College played in Devin and Jason ending up in New Jersey instead of Chestnut…


Now healthy, Drew Kendall & BC O-line looking for a big turnaround

March 16, 2023

The Eagles up front heard all the noise last year. It was impossible not to hear it given how loud it was at times. BC’s offensive line was in shambles and simply never recovered. Well, 2022 is over with and through three spring practices in 2023, the confidence all of the big guys have in each other up front is glaring. There’s depth, size, agility and some downright nastiness in…


Kicker could be one of the more important position battles for BC this spring

March 15, 2023

Image courtesy of BC Athletics When spring ball rolls around, 99.9999999% of people never think about kicker unless it’s an absolute glaring hole. For BC fans, the thought that kicker could be a big time position battle before the 2023 season begins hasn’t been a topic of conversation, but it very well could be a critical spot. For now, it’s Connor Lytton’s job to lose. During his first season in…


BC’s new look offense taking shape early

March 14, 2023

Following the second day of spring practice on Tuesday morning, BC head coach Jeff Hafley talked about the assimilation process for his new coordinators, particularly on offense. While nothing has changed schematically on the defensive side of the ball, the offense has been giving the defense fits early on since everything is brand new. “Chud wasn’t really part of the scheme and structure of everything we were doing, so it’s…
