BC Loses 2010 Football Opponent, Kuechly Nets ACC Honors

Freshman Luke Kuechly returned an interception for a touchdown and has earned conference honors.

Hofstra announced that, like Northeastern in November, they will be dropping football. Like the Huskies, the Pride cite the high costs and low interest and their 69 year old program is no more. Why is this news to Boston? Well, Hofstra just so happened to be BC’s FCS opponent and season opening football game next season. There is no word yet on what BC will do, but the guaranteed payday would likely mean they can find another FCS team to fill the void, or otherwise there will be a late shifting of some other games to find BC a new game.

Luke Kuechly, Anthony Constonzo Among ACC Honored Eagles

Freshman Kuechly is second in the nation in tackles and recorded the highest freshman total (11.83) since the NCAA began tracking the statistic in 2003. The 6’3″, 225 pound Cincinnati native filled in admirably for Mark Herzlich at linebacker, helping the defense avoid a big dropoff many expected with the loss of Herzlich, who will return next year, to cancer combined with the loss of bookend defensive tackles B. J. Raji and Ron Brace to the NFL. He was named the ACC’s Defensive Rookie of the Year for his impressive work this season. Kuechly also had one interception which he returned for a 28 yard touchdown against Central Michigan.

Junior Offensive Tackle Anthony Costonzo joins Kuechly on the All ACC First Team. Senior Center Matt Tennant and sophomore Running Back Montel Harris earned Second Team Honors. Three Eagles also earned Honorable Mentions: senior Wide Reciver Rich Gunnell, junior Guard Thomas Claiborne, and sophomore Punter Ryan Quigley.
