Even the behind-the-scenes guys on the Boston College Eagles are worthy of mention, like senior wide receiver Griff Rogan.Rogan is a Long Islander who has been paying his dues to this program for several years as a walk-on player. Prior to his days at Boston College, he played at Chaminade High School; recent former Eagles punter Gerald Levano also attended that institution.
Unlike many of his current teammates, Griff Rogan was not recruited to the Heights, having to apply like the rest of the average students who currently attend Boston College. When the team went looking for walk-ons, however, the former football star at Chaminade won his way onto the roster.
Rogan joined the team during the 2012 spring season as a freshman, and was in uniform in time for the 2012 season, which was his sophomore year.
He has yet to appear in a game for Boston College, but even as a walk-on, Rogan has gone through all of the same training and preparatory work as the rest of his team for the last three years. That hard work should be recognized.

Even players on the scout team serve a function in this program. Rogan might not get more than a token appearance this season in appreciation of his service to the program, but the reality is that he and walk-ons like him deserve just as much recognition from us for the effort they show.
