Saturday officially wrapped up the 15-practice slate and now the next time we see head coach Jeff Hafley and his crew they’ll be starting training camp. Here’s a detailed look at the sights and sounds around Alumni Stadium on what was a beautiful Saturday morning… -The moon bounce was jumping (pun intended)…


Dino Tomlin looking to create his own path

April 5, 2023

Image courtesy of BC Athletics/Eagle Action The Tomlin name in NFL circles is well known. In the college world? Well, that’s a work in progress. Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin has had quite a successful career, but his son Dino is still trying to create his own path. Tomlin exploded onto the scene last year with a huge fourth quarter against NC State. Now, he’s not only hoping to make…


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…

Scouts and personnel people from the Patriots, Steelers, Lions, Bills, Bears, Falcons, Cardinals, Giants, Colts were among those in…


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…
