Boston College Football: Get To Know The Dudes - #19, S Sean Sylvia

Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

Today, "Get to know" ... safety Sean Sylvia

Name: Sean Sylvia

Position: Safety

Number: #19

Year: Senior

Height: 6-foot-0

Weight: 200 lbs.

Hometown: Dartmouth

High School: Cheshire Academy

2013 Stats: As a junior Sylvia finished the season with 44 tackles, five tackles for losses, and one forced fumble. He also holds the honor of being the first Eagle ejected from a game for targeting in a questionable call in a loss against the University of North Carolina. Had one interception last season in the season opener against Villanova.

2014 Projections: Sylvia gives the BC secondary some good experienced leadership, something they desperately needed. He isn't a real flashy player but can make a play here and there.  I would expect Sylvia to start this season, most likely at the free safety position. Missed the spring game due to an undisclosed injury.

How'd He Get Here: Sylvia was a 2* recruit from Rivals, not rated by ESPN, he did not have any other offers from any other schools.

Twitter Feed: You can follow Sean at @SeanSylvia19.  He tweets a lot to his hometown buddy Arthur Lynch, a former UGA tight end who was drafted by the Miami Dolphins this past NFL draft.

Uniform History: The number #19 doesn't have much of a rich history in BC lore. There are quite a few players who have worn it, but mostly they seem like scout players or backups.  In the early 2000's safety Peter Shean wore #19. Shean was a two year starter for the Eagles racking up 100 tackles in his two years on the field. Here he is getting trucked by PIttsburgh QB Tyler Palko:
