Boston College Fall Practice Report: Final Scrimmage

The Eagles wrapped up fall camp with their fourth and final scrimmage on Wednesday. Here's rundown of the news and notes following the team's final scrimmage of the fall.



As expected, Mark Herzlich didn't participate in the Eagles fourth scrimmage. There's no mention of him in the BCEagles scrimmage write-up, either. The only thing we have to go on is a few Tweets from WZBC and The Heights:

Spaz,"We hope to have [Herzlich] on the field Saturday for practice.""Best case scenario is that he plays a couple plays against Weber St."less than a minute ago via web


I guess the best case scenario is something to look forward to. It will be good to get Herzlich on the field for a couple of snaps against Weber State, but hopefully his role will be limited so he can use the scheduling advantage the Eagles have during the first three weeks to completely heal up the foot.


Statistically, Shinskie didn't have as good a performance as he did through the first three scrimmages, finishing just 11-of-24 for 104 yards. Driving the first team down the field trailing by 8, Shinskie missed Momah in the end zone. Marscovetra's stat line was again solid -- completing 8-of-10 passes for 71 yards. Marsco finishes camp having completed 84 percent of his passes.

Chase Rettig finished 6-7 for 50 yards.



All eyes are on the receivers now with Larmond lost for the season. Bobby Swigert and Tahj Kimble led the way with four catches each. Swigert finished with 21 yards while Kimble had 34. Coleman and Momah each had 3 catches. Billy Flutie is still a few days from returning to the team (quadriceps), writes Blaudschun. 


Running Back

Montel Harris turned in his strongest performance of the spring, rushing for 46 yards on 6 carries and a score. 



Nick Clancy and Luke Kuechly led the way with 10 tackles each. On a blitz, Kuechly "lights up" Mike Javorski to force a fumble. DT Conor O'Neal recovered two fumbles. 


Special Teams

Freese continued his impressive fall camp, either knocking in field goals from long range (48) or drawing crossbar or upright on cue. His 49-yard attempt hit the crossbar but didn't sneak in. Freese finishes camp 7-of-9 with a long of 51 yards. Quigley returned to practice, but with him not attempting any field goals in any of the final three scrimmages, I think we've found our starting FG kicker in Freese.


BC practices tomorrow morning before resuming normal game preparations for the opener against Weber State.
