Name: Kevin Kavalec

Position: Defensive End

Number: #93

Year: Senior

Height: 6-foot-2

Weight: 253 lbs.

Hometown: Middleberg Heights, OH

High School: St. Ignatius

2013 Stats: Kavalec was mostly the backup to Kasim Edebali in 2013 during his freshman year. Played in eight games last season. Kevin debuted against Florida State where he had one solo tackles against the Seminoles. Finished the season with three tackles.

2014 Stats: Kavalec was second on the team with 40 tackles, 10.5 tackles for loss, and 3.5 sacks. His biggest game was against the Demon Deacons when he had ten tackles and two sacks against Wake Forest.

2015 Stats: Played in 11 games for the Eagles, tallying up 13 solo tackles, including 8 for a loss, had one sack against Howard. Missed the end of the FSU game and the NIU game due to this savage hit

2016 Projections: Hopefully a healthy Kavalec will be able to give the Eagles the type of pass rusher they had in 2014. He seemed a bit of a shell of himself after the hit against FSU. With Harold Landry lined up on the other side, and Malachi Moore gone, Kavalec could have a break out season and set himself up to be a name we watch at the NFL draft in 2017.

How'd He Get Here: According to Rivals, Kevin was a 2* recruit that chose Boston College over claimed offer from Ohio. His primary recruiter was former offensive line coordinator Jim Bollman.

Uniform History: Steve Lubischer, a linebacker who played at BC and for the Dolphins, wore it; his son also can lay a pretty good hit as well. Kyle Geiselman, who was one of the players involved in the betting scandal, wore the number. Phil Mettling, a defensive end and starter, wore the number in the early 2000's. Keith Willis Jr. wore the number during his time at BC, where he was a backup defensive lineman in 2005 & 2006. Bryan Murray, a defensive tackle, wore it in 2010.
