2015 Boston College Eagles Football

Two bowl game appearances in his two seasons means that Eagles head coach Steve Addazio is on the right track toward being a contender in the tough ACC. However, his 2015 offense might be forced to take a step back this year due to a huge overhaul in a number of areas. Quarterback should have Darius Wade behind center, but the sophomore has little on-field experience, so the growing pains might affect the offense. Boston College was also jolted when their leading returning receiver from last year, Dan Crimmins, was reported to be no longer part of the team.

Other receiving options, like Sherman Alston are better runners than receivers, which means that the Eagles may have to rely heavily on running back Jon Hilliman’s ground game. Last year, the sophomore gained 860 yards and scored 13 times, but he figures to be backed up by a trio of similar performers. The offensive line will have all new starters in place, which could make things dicey early on, but the defensive front will again make things difficult for running games after finishing second in the country in rush defense for 2014.

Three linemen return as starters, which is a good thing considering the 29.5 tackles-for-loss the group compiled during the 2014 football season. At linebacker, Steven Daniels leads the group, while the secondary has free safety Justin Simmons to handle things. Simmons, who led the team in tackles last season, can also shift to cornerback. Another bowl bid for the 2015 football season appears to be certain, but what level it is may give a clearer indication of whether Boston College has improved.

Notable Boston College Eagles Football Players

Undersized quarterback Doug Flutie will always be remembered for "The Pass" in a game against Miami on November 23, 1984. A last-second, Hail Mary heave was caught by BC wide receiver Gerard Phelan to defeat Miami, the defending national champion. But Flutie was a complete player as well, and his accomplishments for Boston College on the football field earned him a spot in the College Football Hall of Fame.

Mathias Kiwanuka earned Big East Defensive Player of the Year honors in 2004. The Boston College defensive end was a two-time first-team All-American and two-time first-team All Big East player for the Eagles. He went on to win 2 Super Bowls in the NFL, along with 2 NFC Championships. He played in 49 games for BC, recording 155 solo tackles and 245 overall. He also set school records with 64.5 stops for losses and 37.5 quarterback sacks. Adding 2 fumbles recovered, 3 forced fumbles, 3 interceptions and 13 deflected passes, Kiwanuka will be remembered as one of the greatest defensive players Boston College football has ever seen.

Quarterback Matt Ryan was chosen as the ACC Offensive Player of the Year in 2007. He was also honored as the ACC Player of the Year that season, and currently plays quarterback for the Atlanta Falcons in the NFL. He started at QB for Boston College from 2005 through 2007. Each season that he was the starter, he led BC to a postseason bowl game victory, recording a 25 - 7 record in his 32 starts. In 2007 Ryan led BC to the ACC Atlantic Division Championship, also winning the 2007 Manning Award as the nation's top quarterback, beating out eventual Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow.
