Natick's Flutie is ESPN Boston Mr. Football

2

"We are honored to present our fourth annual Mr. Football award to Troy Flutie," said ESPN Boston High Schools co-editor Brendan Hall. "In my decade covering high school sports in Massachusetts, there have been few players I’ve seen that were as electrifying as Troy. It’s easy to sit there and watch him escape pressure and extend plays with his feet, and chalk it up to his famous Flutie lineage. But the kid is just a supreme athlete, and a gamer. That was evident with some of the darting plays he made this season. Every game this fall, often multiple times, he’d give you an amazing play to talk about on the ride home."

"There were several Pac-12 schools that were interested in me, but at the time the Pac-12 was really struggling and a lot of teams like USC and UCLA were struggling with their coaching staffs,’’ said Anderson. "It was a period in time for me where I had the opportunity to go to a conference where you could play the top teams and have a chance to play right away,’’ Anderson said.

"It’s a natural rivalry, it was a great rivalry and it will continue to be," said BC coach Steve Addazio. "There are a group of guys at both places who haven’t really been involved in it but it’s a rivalry you can embrace and enjoy and wrap your arms around. It is what makes college football great and it will become better and better every year. "Going to play in the Dome is a tough task. I’ve been on the other side of it and it’s not easy to play there."

Final COPCO of the regular season, how did this happen? This week the entire team will have to be on their game to get this W and get Andre his Heisman. You will need to do likewise. Congrats to BraemorePuke who came out strong and eventually held off several solid competitors with the caption: Can you see the $58 million? I know it’s up there somewhere. Go BC, beat Syracuse!!! Ready. Set. Caption!!!

Last week's "Hipster Heisman" has moved into the frontrunner position for voters looking to back a guy with impressive stats. By breaking through the sacred 2,000-yard rushing mark a week earlier than expected, Williams has the attention of the country as we see where he will fall among the all-time greats. His time in the spotlight will be brief, because Williams has accomplished this feat in steady fashion, just as Boston College has slowly rebuilt itself back from the pits of a 2-10 despair at the end of the Frank Spaziani era. If Williams rushes his average (188.45 yards per game), he will rank No. 4 on the all-time single-season rushing list behind two Heisman winners (Barry Sanders and Marcus Allen) and just ahead of a Heisman runner-up (Iowa State running back Troy Davis, 1996).

"We have always done a good job stopping the run and doing a good job on the pass, but there are always those chunk plays," said BC senior outside linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis. "If we can take those chunk plays out, it really represents how really well we’ve been doing as a defense. Unfortunately, those chunk plays are in there and they are keeping us from holding a team to under 300 yards total offense to over 300 yards."
