Name: Jack Kenny
Position: Defensive Lineman
Weight: 226 lbs.
Hometown: Baltimore, MD
High School: Loyola Blakefield
2013 Stats (HS): Earned All-Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association first-team honors as a senior lineman at Loyola Blakefield. Earned two varsity letters as an offensive and defensive lineman for the Dons. Also earned two varsity letters in baseball (via bceagles.com).
2014 Projections: Very little is known about Kenny, who just recently popped onto the Eagles' roster this fall. Weighing in at 226 pounds, I suspect he'll take his redshirt this season, bulk up and learn BC's playbook. If he does see the field this year, it may be as a reinforcement on the Eagles' special teams unit.
How'd He Get Here: Kenny, a defensive lineman from Baltimore, was a late addition to the program after earning a roster spot over the summer. Neither Rivals nor 247Sports has a profile page on the defensive lineman.
Twitter Feed: N/A
Tweetable: Not his Tweet, but here's a look at Kenny participating in the Eagles' fall camp.

Uniform History: A defensive lineman from Alexandria, Virginia, Mike Willetts wore the #98 jersey from 1996-99. Willetts still ranks among the program's leaders in career sacks with 15. Scanlan Trophy winner Mike Degnan, a DT from nearby Norwood, also wore the number from 1984-86. The number was most recently worn by DE Alex Albright, a four-year letterwinner and co-captain of the Eagles during his senior year (2010).
