Boston College Defense Dominates Georgia Tech to Extend Win Streak


Jeff Hafley, head coach of the Boston College football program, had faith that his defense possessed more potential than the numbers reflected. He emphasized the importance of fundamental tackling with a fierce and violent determination. The results have started to mirror his beliefs as the Boston College Eagles are on a remarkable three-game winning streak. Yet, Hafley saw room for growth and an opportunity to translate strong defensive play into offensive gains. He issued a challenge to his players and position coaches in preparation for the Eagles' game against Georgia Tech after the bye week. Hafley's challenge was clear: he wanted his defense to excel in the takeaway department. He openly discussed how generating more turnovers would not only bolster the defense but also extend the Eagles' time of possession, thus impacting the outcome of the game. With the offense already making strides in controlling the clock, Hafley saw an opportunity for the defense to further tip the scales in their favor against Georgia Tech.
