Saturday marks a new season for the BC Eagles as their 2015 seasons kicks off against the Black Bears of Maine. The young Eagles with only nine seniors on its rosters square off against another young team in Jack Cosgroves Black Bears.
The Eagles led by sophmore quarterback Darius Wade take on a Black Bears team that was second in the Colonial Athletic Association conference. The Black Bears also finished strong winning its last three out of four games last year. But head coach Steve Addazio well prepared against a very well coached Black Bears team .Even though the teams are in two different conferences the Eagles have no intention of taking the Bears lightly.
BC is young and eager the Eagles have a solid backfield led by running back John Hillman. Wade is a year older and a year more experienced.Look for Wade to have a solid season led by his leadership skills. On defense the Eagles re led by senior middle linebacker Steven Daniels. Overall Eagles fans should be excited about this years young competitive squad.
BC fans will tell by the end of September how the Eagles will finish up this campaign. The Eagles have the Black Bears Saturday followed by Howard, Northern Illinois and Florida State.Success will depend on a healthy Eagle team and playing smart not getting any foolish penalties. It should be a very exciting season.
