The Dudes Strike Back 2016: Better Get To Know #83 Charlie Callinan

NCAA Football: Northern Illinois at Boston College Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

Name: Charlie Callinan

Position: Wide receiver

Number: #83

Year: Junior

Height: 6-foot-4

Weight: 239 lbs.

Hometown: Westfield, NJ

High School: St. Peter's Prep

2013 Stats: Redshirted

2014 Stats: Callinan played in thirteen games, starting in nine. Finished the season with 13 catches for 149 yards and one touchdown pass against Virginia Tech. Not a stat that was listed, but he was a valuable run blocker on the edge, that helped to spring multiple big runs during the season.

2015 Stats: Started 10 of 12 games for the Eagles in 2015, recorded 14 catches for 192 yards and two touchdowns.

2016 Projections: Charlie is going to be a starter this year again. He has good size, and has shown a tendency to use his big frame to get to the ball. With Patrick Towles or Darius Wade throwing him the ball, this may be the first year where he has a legit throwing QB targeting him throughout the season. If he can stay healthy there is no reason his reception numbers shouldn’t increase.

How'd He Get Here: A three-star recruit out of St. Peter's Prep in Jersey City, Callinan chose the Eagles over claimed offers from Connecticut and Rutgers. Other big names, including Michigan State, Notre Dame and Penn State showed interest in the 6-foot-4 receiver. Recruited by Bill McGovern.

Twitter Feed: You can follow Charlie on Twitter @C_Callinan.


Uniform History: Harry Dowes an end in the 60's, Bob Rush and Scott Giesleman a tight end in the 70's and 80's respectively, Ivan Boyd, a FL from 1990-93, Scott Dragos a tight end in the 90's. Tim Sherwin a captain in 1983, also donned it. Superfan/walk on kicker Steve Aponavicius, the leading kicker in BC history, also wore it. Most recently wide receiver Alex Amidon wore it until 2013.
