Another day, another Flutie for Boston College football. This time it is Natick High School quarterback Troy Flutie, son of Darren and nephew of Doug, has committed to Boston College.
According to ESPN Boston:
"It is BC, and now we have generations going here, but I can tell you it’s a whole different feel,” Darren said. "Coach Addazio is a whole different element. He made it very clear to Troy, ’I’m so glad you father, your uncle and your cousin came here; [but] I wouldn’t offer a scholarship to a kid unless I thought he could help us at BC, what I saw Sunday and what I saw on your film, you’re a football player and you’re gonna help us win games.
I thought it was neat that he clarified that. The legacy is cool, but Troy is Troy, and he’s gotta earn it on his own. I’m just so proud of him."
Flutie lit up his competition during his 2012 campaign leading Natick to the Division 2A Super Bowl title game. He completed 68 percent of his passes for 3,153 yards and 35 touchdowns to just eight interceptions, and on the ground he carried 167 times for 1,075 yards and 14 more scores.
Flutie has apparently been recruited as a wide receiver. He has played both sides of the ball as a QB and DB for Natick, but it appears that BC is going to bring him in as a wide receiver like his brother Billy Flutie. Now if he runs a fake field goal for a touchdown in his four years at Boston College, I think we will all be happy.
Troy Flutie has not received any other offers right now, but again it appears he received his scholarship after camp last week at Boston College. I do not believe he is being brought in just because of his name. I live in the area he plays in, and he has done some pretty remarkable things as seen in the video below when he scored 21 points in the 4th quarter

Welcome to the Heights, Troy!
