Some players on Boston College’s football team have a long list of accomplishments. Others have talent, but no playing time at BC to go with it. Then there are a few who don’t even have a picture on the BC football website. Zach Wolfe, a redshirt freshman walk-on from Atlanta, is one of those players.
Regardless, every single player and incoming recruit will get their day this summer, and today is Wolfe’s. Here’s what we know of him and his football career to this point:
• Played high school football at The Lovett School in Atlanta
• Was team captain in his senior year
• Was a multi-sport athlete
• MaxPreps had him as a running back, and he excelled in that role
Boston College lists him as a defensive back, but even last season while he redshirted, Wolfe was listed as a running back. How do I know this? Because we have evidence from last year. This could be a typo, but on the other hand, I wouldn’t be surprised if BC is moving guys around from position to position (whether or not it makes sense). As you’ll see in future articles, Wolfe isn’t the only high school running back Boston College has listed at DB now.
Wolfe is not on the two-deep depth chart, so we have no way of knowing his position or how he’ll perform at it until we actually see him in a game. It seems somewhat unlikely that he’ll get the chance, but if even he does, I don’t suspect he’d see many snaps.
