Boston College: Griffin and Broome add another element to the Eagles offense

October 7, 2022

True freshmen are not suppose to make an immediate impact even in this day in day in age. Don’t tell that to wide receiver Joe Griffin and running back Alex Broome. Both have been inserted into the Eagles line up and they are paying immediate dividends. Griffin scored the Eagles first touchdown last week on a two yard pass from Phil Jurkovec.

This Saturday night, when No….
