Name: Sam Schmal
Weight: 287 lbs.
Hometown: Atlanta, GA
High School: Westminster
2013 Stats (HS): Two-way lineman who was a standout for three varsity seasons for The Westminster Schools in Atlanta ... earned all-Conference and honors as a senior in 2013 ... served as team captain - along with Boston College teammates Austin Chapman and Cameron Seward - as a senior tight end/tackle/defensive end at Westminster ... played for head coach Gerry Romberg. (via bceagles.com)
2014 Projections: Schmal has the size of a tackle, and BC has their two tackles set for the year, and it is seldom that you see a true freshman start on the offensive line. I would imagine barring a disaster, he will be redshirted this year.
How'd He Get Here: A two star tackle from Atlanta, Schmal's lone offer was Boston College

Uniform History: The number 73 was first worn in Jerome Harvdra a tackle Milford, Ct in the late 1950's.

Marc Parenteau a starting offensive lineman, is currently playing in the CFL for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers
On his experience at BC camps: " "The coaches made me feel at home and told me they really liked my talents and thought my best days were ahead of me. I really think I did well at their camp and coaches must have agreed. They set me aside after the camp and told me they wanted to officially offer me. I feel honored to have an offer from them and Boston College will continue to stay at the top of my list regardless of what happens in my recruitment."
