We’re blasting towards the end of the returning players on the 101 Days, setting up for an August which will feature over 50 preview articles before the Eagles face Miami on September 1. Today, we meet Bryan Murray, one of eight fifth-year seniors on the Boston College football team, and one of two on the defensive line.
Murray comes to Boston from Olney, Maryland, where he played for hometown Our Lady of Good Counsel High School. At Good Counsel, Murray played on the offensive line and earned consensus All-State honors for his work there, as well as other local praise. Boston College recruited him for the 2008 class under Jeff Jagodzinski.
He sat out the 2008 season as a redshirt, but made his collegiate debut in 2009. Since that redshirt freshman year, Murray has only appeared in ten games, but the Eagles have swung him over to the defensive line. Murray’s best game as an Eagle came in the snow in his home state last year, where he tackled three Terps.
He does not appear on the two-deep, but one would think it likely that Murray will appear in several games as he rounds out his BC career. When he does so, he’ll have earned a Master’s Degree, which is certainly worth congratulations.
