Boston College Football: Get To Know The Dudes - #70, OL Aaron Kramer

New, 1 comment

Today, "get to know" ... offensive lineman Aaron Kramer.

Bob DeChiara-US PRESSWIRE

Name: Aaron Kramer

Position: Offensive lineman

Number: #70

Year: Senior

Height: 6-foot-7

Weight: 300 lbs.

Hometown: Duxbury, MA

High School: Duxbury

2013 Stats: Saw action in nine games. Cracked the two-deep as the backup right guard.

2014 Projections: Kramer once again projects as a backup right guard to Harris Williams. If Addazio and Frye decide to shake up the O-Line, Kramer might see a bit more playing time. But he likely goes into the season as a reserve guard ready to step in for Williams or Vardaro.

How'd He Get Here: A two-star offensive tackle out of high school, Kramer chose the Eagles over a claimed offer from Connecticut. Also received varying degrees of interest from Notre Dame, Syracuse and Virginia. Ranked as the 10th best Massachusetts recruit in the class of 2010. Recruited by Sean Devine.

Uniform History: Over a dozen former offensive lineman have worn the #70 jersey for the Eagles, though none as famously as Art Donovan. Donovan lettered for the Eagles in 1946-49 after fighting in World War II as part of the U.S. Marine Corps. He would go on to have an outstanding 12-year career as a professional with the Baltimore Colts, New York Yanks and Dallas Texans, becoming the first pure defensive lineman to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Other notable #70s include: T John Miller (1951-54, captain in '54), G John Schmeding (1975-79, captain in '79), OG Steve Lively (1978, 80-82) and OT James Marten (2003-06).

Quotable: "The atmosphere inside the locker room has been great," Kramer said. "You can tell that coach Addazio really cares so much about his players. It's just something that you love to see. You just can't help but get behind him and the bus he's driving."
