Boston College Football: Depth Chart For Army Game

Analyzing the depth chart for this weekend's Boston College vs. Army football game.


Let's try this again ...

The depth chart for the Army game was released on Monday. Due to injuries and solid play by some backups there have been some changes up and down the depth chart. Most noticeably missing are Mehdi Abdesmad and Spencer Rositano who both look to be missing Saturday's game.


1. Chase Rettig (6-3, 206, Sr.)
2. Josh Bordner (6-4, 220, Jr.) OR Mike Marscovetra (6-4, 207, Sr.)

Rettig was serviceable against Florida State, making some good plays but also some cringe-worthy runs. Army is a middle of the road pass defense, but much of that has to do with their schedule. Ball State, who have the 10th ranked pass attack, shredded the Army defense for over 300 yards.

1. Andre Williams (6-0, 227, Sr.)
2. Myles Willis (5-9, 187, Fr.)

After breaking out against Florida State, Myles Willis is finally on the depth chart for the Eagles. After watching last week's game it was clear that he has the potential to make explosive plays on both offense and special teams. Army has been a mixed bag in terms of rushing defense, stuffing Louisiana Tech last weekend but struggling mightily against Wake Forest and Stanford. I expect BC to run the ball down their throats,and control the time of possession; something BC struggled with last year at West Point.

1. Jake Sinkovec (6-4, 244, Sr.)
2. Bobby Wolford (6-2, 233, R-Fr.)

Sinkovec deserves a lot of credit for the game he played last week and clearly he is the best FB on the team. Hopefully he can stay healthy for the remainder of the season because he provides the Eagles with a solid weapon in the backfield both as a blocker and as a pass catcher as we witnessed on Saturday.

1. Alex Amidon (6-0, 182, Sr.)
2. Harrison Jackson (6-3, 201, So.)

1. David Dudeck (5-11, 190, So.)
2. Brian Miller (6-3, 241, So.)

1. Harrison Jackson (6-3, 201, So.) OR Spiffy Evans (6-0, 184, Jr.)
2. Dan Crimmins (6-5, 222, So.)

Major changes in the receiver corps this week. David Dudeck is now on to his second position change in less than a year after being moved from safety to running back. At this point you have to shrug your shoulders and say why not? We now have a four game sample size to show that none of the other WR have done much of anything. This has made life very difficult for Alex Amidon. Dudeck made a nice catch last weekend where he got plastered on the hit.

Marcus Grant continues to be out with an injury.

1. C.J. Parsons (6-6, 253, Jr.)
2. Michael Giacone (6-5, 260, So.) OR Louie Addazio (6-3, 253, So.)

1. Mike Naples (6-4, 237, Sr.)

C.J. Parsons had a great game against FSU. He showed some nice hands on his catches, and did well when BC went to the unbalanced line.

1. Matt Patchan (6-6, 300, Sr.)
2. Seth Betancourt (6-6, 298, Jr.) OR Dave Bowen (6-7, 297, So.)

1. Bobby Vardaro (6-5, 310, Jr.)
2. Paul Gaughan (6-6, 303, So.) OR Dan Lembke (6-6, 304, So.)

1. Andy Gallik (6-3, 302, Jr.)
2. Frank Taylor (6-3, 287, R-Fr.)

1. Harris Williams (6-3, 298, Jr.)
2. Aaron Kramer (6-7, 299, Jr.)

1. Ian White (6-5, 302, Sr.)
2. Jim Cashman (6-7, 298, R-Fr.)

No changes in the offensive line this week, which is good because with the exception of a drive breaking sack on Rettig this did pretty well against FSU. I see this group's cohesion improving each week, but what is interesting is that Army appears to have a solid pass rush. But look deeper and you see that 7 of them came against Louisiana Tech and Morgan State.


1. Kaleb Ramsey (6-3, 285, Sr.)
2. Brian Mihalik (6-9, 283, Jr.) OR Nick Lifka (6-2, 274, So.)

1. Jaryd Rudolph (6-3, 275, Sr.)
2. Truman Gutapfel (6-3, 261, Fr.)

1. Dominic Appiah (6-5, 291, Jr.)
2. Connor Wujciak (6-3, 300, So.)

1. Kasim Edebali (6-3, 246, Sr.)
2. Kevin Kavalec (6-3, 242, Fr.)

Some major changes are happening on the defensive line much of it due to the injury of DE Mehdi Abdesmad who's lost for the year. Rudolph was pushed up from his backup role to starter and Gutapfel will likely get some playing time as well. Nick Lifka is listed as a DE for the first time as well, which is a change from his usual role as a linebacker. At right tackle, Appiah will move up and get the start over Wujciak.

1. Kevin Pierre-Louis (6-1, 225, Sr.)
2. Josh Keyes (6-2, 215, Jr.)

1. Steele Divitto (6-2, 237, Sr.)
2. Sean Duggan (6-4, 241, Jr.)

1. Steven Daniels (6-0, 249, So.)
2. Mike Strizak (6-2, 239, R-Fr.) OR Tim Joy (6-2, 222, So.)

Nothing has changed here. I have been impressed by the play of Josh Keyes so far this year. The junior has been solid on the blitz. Steven Daniels definitely improved last week over his play over the first three games.

1. Manny Asprilla (5-11, 177, Jr.)
2. Al Louis-Jean Jr. (6-2, 195, So.) OR John Johnson (6-0, 180, Fr.)

1. Justin Simmons (6-3, 188, So.)
2. Dominique Williams (6-0, 212, Jr.) OR Matt Milano (6-0, 200, Fr.)

1. Sean Sylvia (6-0, 208, Jr.)
2. Justin Simmons (6-3, 188, So.) OR Ted Davenport (6-1, 203, Jr.)

1. Bryce Jones (6-1, 166, So.)
2. C.J. Jones (5-11, 185, Jr.)

The big change here is that Spencer Rositano is out with what could be a concussion after a hit last weekend. Luckily after chasing Florida State receivers for a week they get to take on the Army offense, which runs the triple option and is dead last in the country in passing yards.


1. Nate Freese (5-11, 192, Sr.)
2. Alex Howell (6-5, 215, So.)

1. Nate Freese (5-11, 192, Sr.)
2. Alex Howell (6-5, 215, So.)

1. Leonard Skubal (5-10, 215, R-Fr.)
2. Mike Naples (6-4, 237, Sr.)

1. Spiffy Evans (6-0, 184, Jr.)
2. Dave Dudeck (5-11, 190, So.)

1. Spiffy Evans (6-0, 184, Jr.)
2. Myles Willis (5-9, 187, Fr.)

What a game last weekend for this group. Spiffy Evans and Myles Willis has fantastic games making big plays that gave BC great field position. Freese looked solid on his field goals.
