Rich Shrigley '82

- A three-sport star at Nashua (N.H.) High School, this tough 6-5 forward turned down a scholarship offer from his uncle, Norm Sloan of Florida, to enroll at BC. Shrigley started from day one at the Heights, and played in virtually every game during his four seasons.

- As a senior in 1981-82, he was a captain, and chipped in 12 points in an NCAA Tournament victory over San Francisco, filling the void left by a foul-plagued John Bagley.

- During Shrigley's basketball career, the Eagles averaged 21 wins a year. BC went to the NIT in 1979-80, where Shrigley earned all-star accolades. The Eagles made the NCAA Tournament the next two years.

- After finishing his senior season, he remained at BC and joined the football team the following fall, playing tight end for BC's first bowl-bound squad in 40 years.

- Inducted into the Boston College Varsity Club Athletic Hall of Fame in 1989.
