Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

Name: Bobby Vardaro

Position: Offensive lineman

Number: #76

Year: Senior

Height: 6-foot-5

Weight: 306 lbs.

Hometown: North Reading MA

High School: Phillips Andover

2013 Stats: Started all 13 games at left guard.

2014 Projections: Silberman appears poised to start at left guard again, and again should give BC some stability at the guard position.

How'd He Get Here: Bobby was the #2 recruit in Massachusetts in 2010, a 3* from Phillips Andover, who selected Boston College over offers from Buffalo, Connecticut, Northeastern, Syracuse, Tulane and Vanderbilt. His main recruiter was Sean Devine.

Andy Gallik on Bobby Vardaro and the offensive line

We definitely have the same mentality of being a tough, physical unit, not just all around but especially up front on the offensive line. We return myself, Bobby Vardaro and Harris Williams and we also return Seth Betancourt at tackle, who has played a lot of ball since he's been here as well. So even though we lost Andre, we do have a good stable of running backs ready to step in. Everybody knows the mentality we have as an offense, running downhill, being physical, being extremely tough. Everybody has the right mindset going into the spring again.

Twitter Feed: Nope.

Uniform History: Boston College really hasn't had many notable players that have worn #76. The first known player to wear it was Frank Morze who wore it in the 1950's. Bill Stephanos, an offensive tackle wore the number before a career with the Minnesota Vikings. Gary Kowalski, an offensive tackle from 1980-82 wore it before heading to the NFL where he had one season as a starter for the San Diego Chargers. Finally, Chris Snee, who currently plays for the New York Giants, and is the son in law of Tom Coughlin, wore it during his distinguished career with the Eagles.
