Who’s already here?

Steven Daniels

Daniels had impressive sophomore season picking up 88 tackles (56 solo) and 3 sacks (half the total of the 2012 Boston College defense!). He is going to be the stalwart of the linebacker corps for his two remaining seasons on the Heights.

Josh Keyes

As a junior this season, Keyes played in 11 games racking up 30 tackles and 3.5 sacks. He figures to get more playing time in his senior season.

Sean Duggan

After two consecutive 39 tackle seasons, Duggan wasn’t utilized much by the new coaching staff in his junior season. He appeared in 11 games but was only able to pick up one tackle.

Marquis Little

The freshman linebacker only appeared in 4 games this season but did pick up 1.5 sacks. Expect more playing time for Little next season.

Mike Strizak

Was a redshirt in 2012. In his freshman year, he appeared in 9 games racking up 5 tackles.
