BC hosted its first scrimmage of training camp on Saturday. The rust was there, but a handful of Eagles, including wide receiver C.J. Lewis and placekicker Aaron Boumerhi, turned heads.
BC football had its annual spring game Saturday. The contest featured a modified scoring system, a standout performance from the offensive line, and a showcase of the Eagles’ running back depth.
A.J. Dillon rushed for 149 yards and three touchdowns in less than a quarter of work, and BC cruised to its second 30-plus point blowout of the season against longtime New England rival Holy Cross.
Starting quarterback Anthony Brown took a preseason-high 30 or so snaps, and the running back corps—ranging from A.J. Dillon to John Fadule—paced the first and second-team offenses, from start to finish.
Anthony Brown was hit or miss in his first scrimmage of training camp, and, as a whole, the offense was out of sync for the majority of the exhibition—Jim Reid’s defense capitalized, recording four interceptions on the day.
The Eagles never committed more than three turnovers in a single game all of last season. After Saturday’s game against Wake Forest, Anthony Brown and Co. won’t be able to say the same in 2017.
