The four Boston College football captains for the 2014 season were named today ahead of their Saturday season opener.
Gallik and Williams were Boston College football’s representatives at the ACC media days last month in Greensboro, North Carolina. The former, Gallik, has been starting at center for the Eagles for the last several years and developed into a fine anchor for the team’s offensive line. Last year, this helped produce one of the best rushing attacks in the country, helping get Andre Williams to the Heisman Trophy ceremony.
The latter, Dominique Williams, becomes one of the Boston College football captains having played in 33 games for the Eagles so far. 2013 was far and away his best season yet, with Williams making 65 tackles and catching his first career interception. During spring football, he was named the recipient of the annually-awarded Jay McGillis Memorial Scholarship.
Josh Bordner’s journey at Boston College is well known, as he was a former backup quarterback for the Eagles who came into games in Boston College’s closest rendering of a Wildcat offense. With the coming of Tyler Murphy, Troy Flutie, and Darius Wade, Bordner was moved to an area of the depth chart that needed an extreme amount of help: wide receiver.
Finally, Sean Duggan has had a relatively quiet Boston College career so far, in that other St. Xavier products Luke Kuechly and Steven Daniels amongst others have hogged the spotlight. Through his junior season of 2013, Duggan has made 79 tackles in 34 games played.
Congratulations to all of the Boston College football captains for this season.
