Boston College Football: Get To Know The Dudes - #89, TE Tom Sweeney

A big tight end, what will he bring to the Eagles?

BC Eagles Athletics

Name: Tom Sweeney

Position: Tight End

Number: #89

Year: Freshman

Height: 6-foot-5

Weight: 239 lbs.

Hometown:Ramsey, NJ

High School: Don Bosco

2013 Stats (HS): Earned all-state honorable mention, National Underclassmen Combine (NUC) Tight End MVP, first-team all-county and first-team all-league as a senior ... tallied 27 receptions for 539 yards and five touchdowns in his final high school season. (bceagles.com)

2014 Projections: Between Louie Addazio, Michael Giacone, Joel Rich Jarrett Darnstatter and from what I hear Dan Crimmins, it sounds like BC is going to be set at the tight end position this year. I would look for Tom Sweeney to redshirt this season as he learns the physical demands of the tight end position at the college level.

How'd He Get Here: A two star tight end from New Jersey, Tom chose Boston College as he only offer. He also had interest from Rutgers and the University of Miami.

On Why He Chose Boston College: “I chose Boston College is because you get the combination of an unbelievable academic school and an unbelievable athletic school,” Sweeney said. “We have a pretty good class coming in and the chance to play early and turn things around, make our way up in the ACC and hopefully win the ACC in our next four years. You just can't go wrong with Boston College."

Uniform History:The number #89 has only had a few players wear it for Boston College. The first player to wear it was William McKenney a center, who wore it 1961. Jim King a defensive end wore it in the 60's as well, Todd Pollack a tight end and Chris Leber a tight end in the 70's. Mark Chmura, a star tight end for the Eagles wore it in the 90's while Sean Ryan a defensive end in the early 2000's.
