Chase Rettig will get at least one more college football game to impress NFL scouts. The Eagles four-year starting quarterback has been selected to participate in the College All Star Bowl roster.
Rettig has started in each of Boston College's last 44 games, throwing for 8,248 yards and 52 TDs over the last four seasons. The Sierra Madre, California native is one of just four quarterbacks in school history to throw for more than 7,000 yards in his career.
Two years ago, Rettig was asked to carry the Eagles' offense in OC Doug Martin's pass-to-set-up-the-run offense. Rettig became BC's fourth 3,000-yard passer in program history with 3,065 passing yards -- nearly matching his passing total from his first two seasons combined (3,198) -- but only completed 54.2 percent of passes and took a beating in the process (sacked 36 times).
This past season, with the Eagles' ground game powered by Doak Walker Award winner Andre Williams, Rettig transitioned into more of a game-manager. He responded by putting together his best statistical season of his four, throwing for 1,995 yards on 162-of-263 passing (61.6%), 17 touchdowns to just 8 interceptions.
In its second season, the College All Star Bowl is one of the newer entrants in the post-season college football all-star game circuit. The game will be played on February 14, 2014 at Furman's Paladin Stadium in Greenville, South Carolina and televised by CBS Sports Network (6:00 p.m. Eastern).
The two teams for the game will be selected by a player draft conducted by each team's coaching staffs and scouts. More information on the College All Star Bowl can be found at thecollegeallstarbowl.com or on Twitter @theallstarbowl.
Here's to hoping that Chase impresses and gets on an NFL team's radar.
