Congrats to Will Blackmon ('06), Mark Herzlich ('10), Mathias Kiwanuka ('05), Chris Snee ('04) and the New York Giants for their 21-17 victory over the New England Patriots last night in Super Bowl XLVI. It's the second Super Bowl ring for Snee and Kiwi and the first for Blackmon and Herzlich.

Blackmon and Herzlich become the 23rd and 24th Boston College Eagles to win a Super Bowl ring, while Snee and Kiwi become the seventh and eighth Eagles to win more than one Super Bowl. It's the fourth consecutive season that a former Boston College player earns a Super Bowl ring.

Blackmon, Herzlich, Kiwi and Snee join Steve DeOssie (Super Bowl XXV) as the only Eagles to win the Super Bowl as members of the New York Giants. The seven Super Bowl rings won by former Eagles as members of the Giants is the most of any NFL franchise.

Congratulations are also in order to the John ('76) and Chris ('79) Mara, Tom Coughlin, Jack Bicknell Jr. ('85), Sean Ryan, Jerry Palmieri, Jerald Ingram and Jen Conley. No other NFL franchise has more ties to the Heights than the Giants and it's great to see the franchise representing Boston College well with their second Super Bowl in four years.

"It's a quality school and they don't always get the cream of the crop, recruit-wise, but they've produced a lot of NFL players, particularly offensive linemen, and that's something to be proud of,'' Mara said. "They produce quality kids, because they take quality kids. They don't take a lot of questionable characters.''
