Boston College Football: Get To Know The Dudes - #48, K Jake Wilhelm

Today get to know a dude, kicker Jake Wilhelm

Jared Wickerham

Name: Jake Wilhelm

Position: Kicker

Number: #48

Year: Sophomore

Height: 5 foot 8

Weight: 147 lbs.

Hometown: Amherst, OH

High School: St. Edward

2013 Stats: Did Not Record Any Statistics

2014 Projections: Another practice squader/possible place kick holder, Wilhelm got some snaps as a wide receiver during the spring game because BC didn't have enough depth to line up 4 WR's (we didn't have PEOPLE). I can't imagine he will see any playing time at any position this year, unless he is a fantastic place kicker and can unseat Alex Howell and Mike Knoll.

How'd He Get Here: His bio doesn't say it, but have to imagine that he is a walk on.

Uniform History: Shares the number with current BC defensive linemen Nick Lifka. There really hasn't been a lot of varsity players at BC they have worn the #48. The oldest known player to wear the number was Paul Raftery a guard out of South Boston in 1928. Ryan Utzler, BC's fullback from 1998-200 wore the number. Most recently linebacker Tyronne Pruitt wore it from 2004-2007.
