Better Know A Dude 2015: #33 Linebacker Tim Joy

Coming back from a season ending injury in 2014, what can Joy give the Eagles?

Name: Timothy Joy

Position: Linebacker

Number: #33

Year: Junior

Height: 6-foot-1

Weight: 223 lbs.

Hometown: Chelmsford, MA

High School: Chelmsford

2013 Stats: Played in three games: Army, Virginia Tech and New Mexico State. Did not record any tackles.

2014 Stats: Did not play due to knee injury

2015 Projections: Last season Steven Daniels, Mike Strizak, Matt Milano and Connor Strachan gave the Eagles all meaningful snaps, but there should be room for Joy to jump in if he earns it in practice. Joy was mostly a special teamer in 2013, but in 2012 he did get major playing time. Given his experience I'd expect Joy to be out there on the two deep week in and week out.

Over/Under: 30 tackles

How'd He Get Here: Tim Joy was a 3* linebacker out of Chelmsford who selected Boston College which was his only choice. Sean Devine was a main recruiter.

Twitter Feed: Negative

Uniform History: The first Eagle to wear the number #33 was end John Kirke, who was also captain in 1917. Before his son Connor committed to BC, Stephen Strachan wore #33 as a running back for the Eagles. Ron Perryman, a linebacker wore it before he courageously battled ALS that ended in 2011. In the early 80's Jim Bell wore it, a running back that ran for 1895 yards. Omari Walker, a running back and captain for the Eagles on his way to running for 2,411 yards and 32 touchdowns in the late 90s. From 2000-2003, kicker Sandro Siortino wore it.
