Boston College Preseason Practice Report No. 13
Team begins third week of preseason camp
CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. – The Boston College football team finished its 13th practice Monday morning inside Alumni Stadium. Now in the third week of preseason camp, the Eagles returned to the field after a day off Sunday and for the first time since Saturday’s second scrimmage.
Monday’s practice was another opportunity where both the offense and defense enjoyed a strong, competitive workout.
One bright spot was the return of junior wide receiver Michael Walker. The Florida native has been limited in camp due to injury but was back full-go on Monday. Walker, who led the Eagles in receptions, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns in 2016, had a nice reception during 11-on-11 action.
Week three of preseason camp continues with practice on Tuesday.
Practice Notes: NFL scouts from the Minnesota Vikings, New Orleans Saints, Denver Broncos, Philadelphia Eagles and Carolina Panthers were in attendance at Monday’s practice … former BC standout wide receiver Brian Brennan attended Monday’s practice and spoke to the team.

Brennan played in the NFL from 1984-92 with the Browns, Cincinnati Bengals, and San Diego Chargers … senior linebackers Ty Schwab and Connor Strachan teamed up for a sack during team period Monday … junior running back Jon Hilliman has shown an excellent burst all of preseason camp and did again on Monday with a couple runs to the edge … senior cornerback Isaac Yiadom had an interception during the team period … senior Noa Merritt contributed a big TFL as he stuffed a run play during team action as well … Quarterback Darius Wade connected with redshirt freshman Kobay White for a key first down during the 11-vs-11 play … Anthony Brown directed the offense on an impressive drive and capped it off with a touchdown pass to Davon Jones.
