Boston College Football Preseason Practice Report No. 7
Eagles hold final practice before Saturday’s first scrimmage of training camp
CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. – The Boston College football team completed its seventh practice of training camp inside the Fish Field House while finishing the last three periods at Alumni Stadium. The Eagles mixed the practice with some live periods with the threes while going through a mix of 7-on-7 work and red zone.
Third down drills started with sophomore quarterback EJ Perry finding senior wide receiver Jeff Smith, who slipped through the secondary to go the distance down the sideline causing WR coach Rich Gunnell to chase him the length of the field in celebration. Smith went 55 yards for the score.
Offense vs. Defense: Redshirt freshman wide receiver Noah Jordan-Williams got into the mix early with a reception over the DB on a 25-yard gain… sophomore running back Ben Glines continued to make positive gains in the run game, spelling sophomore AJ Dillon in plays with the first team offense… Glines later caught a ball in the flat and took it in from the five for a score… Perry found senior Michael Walker in the corner of the end zone, but senior Taj-Amir Torres forced him out of bounds for the incompletion… redshirt freshman cornerback Tate Haynes broke up a pass, swatting the ball away at the goal line.
