40 down, 60 to go on the 2013 Boston College Eagles football countdown.
Who Most Recently Wore 60Bryan Davis, center
Davis was an offensive lineman who in 2012 was an academic senior, after having redshirted his first year in 2009. Though he only made it into a handful of games over his time at Boston College, Davis notably switched to defense last year, where he recorded two tackles (one tackle for a loss) in attempting to help out the defensive line.
He did not appear on the 2013 spring roster and indications are that he will not be back as a fifth-year senior.
