Boston College’s Chris Snee an ACC Legend; Not an ACC Alum


Aside from leaving out one minor detail, congratulations go out to Boston College alumnus Chris Snee for being a part of the Legends Class for the 2014 ACC Football Championship.

Snee, a guard for the Eagles during the Tom O’Brien days of the early 2000s, went on to play for his father-in-law, former Boston College coach Tom Coughlin, with the New York Giants. He retired prior to the 2014 preseason.

During his Boston College days, Snee was considered a solid lineman. Following his stellar senior season with the Eagles, he was a second-team All-American.

Chris Snee was drafted by the New York Giants early in the second round of the 2004 NFL Draft; he was Boston College’s highest draft selection that year, keeping the steady flow of players from “O-Line U” to the National Football League.

Of course, Snee played his entire Boston College career while the Eagles were still parked within the Big East.

The Big East home office was not available for comment.

Nevertheless, it is an honor to be selected, even though the significance of the team as such remains somewhat unimportant. Chris Snee was a very steady player on the Heights and helped lead the way for even more talented offensive linemen to get to the NFL from Boston College.
