You guys, Boston College football is the day after tomorrow. To celebrate, some famous Eagles #2′s and two facts about one of those #2′s.
Who Wears 2 Now
Nigel Matthews, WR, redshirt freshman
Matthews comes to Boston College from Georgia, like several of the new faces we’ve got coming in these next few seasons. As a senior at the Darlington School, he earned all-state first-team honors. Matthews was a multi-sport athlete, also running track and field before he left high school, and was good at that as well.
