Boston College Football: Get To Know A Dude - #39, LB Sean Burke

Get to know a dude, linebacker Sean Burke

Ed Wolfstein-USA TODAY Sports

Name: Sean Burke

Position: LB

Number: #39

Year: Sophomore

Height: 5-11

Weight: 229 lbs.

Hometown: Lansdale, PA

High School:Lasalle

2013 Stats: Did not appear in any games

2014 Projections: Even with BC's turnover at linebacker, I would expect Burke to be low on the totem pole in terms of playing time. He has decent size, so maybe we could see him on special teams, but most likely someone who will be on the team for the practice squad

How'd He Get Here: Though his biography doesn't say it, it sounds like he was a walk on.

Twitter Feed: Not that I can find, though Sean Burke is a fairly common name and I might have missed it.

Uniform History: The first known player to wear the number was Ed Stewart, a back from Bridgewater, MA in the late 1920's. Linebacker Darius Bagan wore #39 as a backup linebacker in 2009. Running back Mike Javorski wore the number in 2012, though he didn't see any playing time under Spaz.

Sean's High School Coach on his play:

"Sean is just a real tough kid, and he works at it so hard," said Explorers head coach Drew Gordon. "That’s not just practice, or on the field. That’s in the weight room, in the film room and everything that we do."
