Better Know A Dude 2015: #83 WR Charlie Callinan

He stepped up as a starter in '14, but what does this season hold for WR Charlie Callinan?

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

Name: Charlie Callinan

Position: Wide receiver

Number: #83

Year: Sophomore

Height: 6-foot-4

Weight: 224 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 Projections: Callinan is going to get major playing time this season, most likely as a starter. Remember, he was only a freshman last year, so he has lots of room to improve this season. Look for his targets and gametime to increase this season.

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.
