Boston College Preseason Practice Report No. 6

Offense enjoys the upper hand in the team’s first scrimmage of preseason camp





 CHESTNUT HILLMass. – For the first time in preseason camp, the Boston College football team scrimmaged for most of the practice Saturday morning at Alumni Stadium. The offense enjoyed the upper hand throughout the scrimmage as the Eagles controlled the line of scrimmage and featured an explosive attack.

BC got a break from the heat through the first five practices of preseason camp as clouds and cooler temperatures were present Saturday.

The running game looked exceptional as all five running backs showed flashes. True freshman running back Travis Levy had a monster scrimmage, running for two touchdowns of approximately 70 yards and 55 yards. True freshman running back AJ Dillon also looked to score on a 60-yard touchdown run, but the officials ruled him out of bounds after a 40-yard run. Junior Jon Hilliman and sophomore Davon Jones also had several bruising runs, highlighted by Jones delivering a big hit at the end of a run. Jones also scampered 40 yards as the offense moved the ball throughout the morning scrimmage.

The offensive line on both the first and second team offenses opened the way for the running backs to enjoy plenty of daylight.

Both redshirt freshman Anthony Brown and graduate student Darius Wade looked comfortable in the pocket and both moved the ball during their time under center. Brown threw one of the best passes of the day with a rocket over the middle to redshirt freshman Kobay White while sophomore tight end Korab Idrizi showed tremendous athleticism on a long catch and run from Brown.

The Eagles are off Sunday before resuming practice on Monday morning.

Practice Notes: Throughout camp, the freshmen class has featured several players who look to be major contributors throughout their career at The Heights. True freshman cornerback Brandon Sebastian had an interception in the end zone during Saturday’s scrimmage … Wade found Smith for a big gain through the air as the Florida native showed his breakaway speed on several plays throughout the scrimmage … junior defensive lineman Zach Allen had a big tackle behind the line of scrimmage as the offense was driving … one of the key position battles to keep an eye on is at place-kicker. Max Schulze-Geisthovel, who played soccer for the Eagles, has been one of the pleasant surprises of camp so far. A native of Drensteinfurt, Germany, Schulze-Geisthovel has shown a strong leg on kickoffs and field goals.
