Better Know A Dude 2015: #98 Defensive Lineman Jack Kenny

Depth at defensive line, Jack Kenny is thy name.

Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

Name: Jack Kenny

Position: Defensive Lineman

Number: #98

Year: Sophomore

Height: 6-foot-3

Weight: 257 lbs. (according to my numbers he put 31 pounds from last year)

Hometown: Baltimore, MD

High School: Loyola Blakefield

2013 Stats (HS): Earned All-Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association first-team honors as a senior lineman at Loyola Blakefield. Earned two varsity letters as an offensive and defensive lineman for the Dons. Also earned two varsity letters in baseball (via bceagles.com).

2014 Stats: Did not see any game time last season

2015 Projections: Kenny, with his new found weight gain now looks like he is approaching legitimate d-lineman size; however, BC has a ton of talent at this position. At defensive end he would have to be behind Harold Landry, Evan Kelly, Kevin Kavalec, Malachi Moore and Zach Allen. Maybe he could see some time on special teams?

How'd He Get Here: Kenny, a defensive lineman from Baltimore, was a late addition to the program after earning a roster spot over the summer. Neither Rivals nor 247Sports has a profile page on the defensive lineman.

Tweetable and Highlight: Jack Kenny got the coveted Dude Of The Day Award from Don Brown after Scrimmage #3 on Wednesday

Get To Know A Dude 2014: #98 Jack Kenny (BC Interruption)

Uniform History: A defensive lineman from Alexandria, Virginia, Mike Willetts wore the #98 jersey from 1996-99. Willetts still ranks among the program's leaders in career sacks with 15. Scanlan Trophy winner Mike Degnan, a DT from nearby Norwood, also wore the number from 1984-86. The number was most recently worn by DE Alex Albright, a four-year letterwinner and co-captain of the Eagles during his senior year (2010). He shares the number with kicker Mike Knoll.
