Joseph Drum was the first head coach in Boston College history. Within his six game career, he amassed a record of three wins and three losses. That was 117 years ago. Since then, Boston College has seen 33 different head coaches. Thirty-three!
During this time, the Eagles have won 638 games and fourteen bowl games while producing fourteen first round NFL picks and countless local legends. The fans have witnessed the undefeated season of 1940 as well as the majestic and improbable Heisman campaign of Doug Flutie. During these extraordinary years we have seen great players put up jaw dropping stats; some more remarkable than others.
As we watch the 2010 Boston College squad, all eyes are drawn to junior running back Montel Harris. This scrappy 5'10 back sits only 1,253 yards back of Derrick Knight for the school's all-time rushing mark, and with two years of eligibility left, the record is expected to be shattered. With over a century of tradition, there have been some remarkable achievements by Boston College players.
That simply begs the question – which records are meant to be broken? And moreover, which of these feats have been indelibly written into the school's tremendous history?
