As the summer months progress one of the first signs of the return of college football are the conference media days. Starting on July 21st, players, coaches and the commissioner will be speaking to the media, answering questions, and the first media poll will be conducted.
This year, the “ACC Kickoff” event will be held in Charlotte, North Carolina (unfortunately no BCI writers will be able to make the trip). Two Eagles will be representing Boston College along with head coach Steve Addazio. Running back Myles Willis and linebacker Matt Milano will be holding court with the ACC press during the week. Both players have been integral parts of the Eagles team over the past three years.
