Who Wears 14 Now
Mack Lowrie, QB, freshman
Lowrie is a native of eastern Massachusetts who played his high school ball right down the road at Roxbury Latin. He was a record-setting quarterback in the ISL with a 35-touchdown season; he threw 75 in his career. Lowrie threw for 5,600 passing yards and also ran for 1,600 yards, creating all sorts of offense for his team. He is a probable redshirt for 2013.

If you’re talking about 2014, we’ll find out next year. If you want to know about the 1914 Eagles, they went 5-4 and played just two home games, both at Fenway Park.
In Case You Didn’t Notice
The number 14 has relatively low significance in Boston College football history. Ho hum.
