Boston College Preseason Practice Report No. 7

Both sides go back-and-forth during Monday’s practice





CHESTNUT HILLMass. – The Boston College football team began week two of preseason camp with the team’s seventh practice of the preseason Monday morning at Alumni Stadium. The Eagles, who were off Sunday, practiced under cool and comfortable temperatures for over two hours Monday morning in full pads.

After the offense got the upper hand during the first scrimmage of preseason camp Saturday, the defense and offense went back-and-forth during the 11-on-11 work during Monday’s practice.

Both redshirt freshman Anthony Brown and graduate student Darius Wade looked sharp during Monday’s workout. Wade connected on a perfect deep ball to redshirt freshman Kobay White while also finding sophomore tight end Korab Idrizi for a touchdown during 11-on-11 work. Idrizi has looked good during preseason camp and should provide another strong option at tight end behind returning starter Tommy Sweeney.

Brown also found Idrizi in-stride for a big gain during the 11-on-11 action Monday.

Running back continues to look like a strength of the Eagles in 2017 as junior Jon Hilliman ripped off a couple of nice runs, including going 70 yards for a touchdown. True freshman Travis Levy again showed his toughness on a few runs while fellow newcomer AJ Dillon had a beautiful cut back for a long touchdown run.

The defense had its fair share of moments during the team periods of work as junior defensive end Wyatt Ray finished with two sacks while senior defensive end Harold Landry and senior linebacker Connor Strachan each also had one sack.

The Eagles return to the practice field Tuesday morning at Alumni Stadium.

Practice Notes: NFL scouts from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Detroit Lions were at Monday’s practice … senior wide receiver scored on a long touchdown run to start the 11-on-11 work Monday … sophomore cornerback Hamp Cheevers continues to make plays during preseason camp with two pass breakups Monday … senior defensive back Gabe McClary and senior defensive back Issac Yiadomalso had a PBU during team work Monday … one of the biggest hits of the morning was from true freshman Isaiah McDuffie who made a crushing hit in the open field on a receiver.
