Boston College Football: Get To Know The Dudes - #26, RB David Dudeck

Today "get to know" running back David Dudeck

Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

Name: David Dudeck

Position: Running Back

Number: #26

Year: Junior

Height: 5-foot-11

Weight: 189 lbs.

Hometown:Stuart, FL

High School: Hun School

2013 Stats: David Dudeck only saw limited action in 2013 only one year after being Frank Spaziani's "feature back". He finished the 2013 season with 5 rushes for 8 yards. He did however play some slot receiver, where he caught 11 passes for 84 yards and one touchdown. He returned kicks, averaging 15.6 yards a return, and had three punt returns for 25 yards.

2014 Projections: I would have to think that Dudeck's role will continue to diminish in the backfield with the addition of all the freshmen. I don't expect him to be a kick or punt returner this year either as Dudeck never really wowed anyone with any of his returns. However he may find a more consistent role as a slot receiver, where BC doesn't have much depth there and Dudeck is a coach favorite, he may get some starts there.

How'd He Get Here: Dudeck was a 2* recruit who chose Boston College over Northern Colorado, Yale and Navy in 2012. He was recruited by Mike Siravo and Mike Dawson.

Twitter Feed: There is a DDudeck26 Twitter account, but it appears just to be a spam bot. So no.

Uniform History: The earliest player to wear this number was quarterback Frank Colbert. Mike Esposito, a halfback and captain in 1974 wore it. Dan Abraham a one year starter at cornerback in 1983 wore it. Marcus Cherry (who I had as a professor) wore in 1986-89, in Dorchester linebacker Curtis Bolden wore twenty six from 1998-2000.

What does Addazio Have To Say About Dudeck:

"I’m telling you, that kid took about every snap in preseason camp,’’ Addazio said. "It was unbelievable sometimes the licking he would take. That gave Andre an opportunity to keep his body intact and fresh. That is a huge factor.

"It’s one of those unknown little things that people take for granted. But we don’t here. That guy right there is an unselfish guy who lays it on the line every day,’’ Addazio said. "You could tell him to play D-tackle, he’d run in there and do it. Those guys are invaluable."
