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.
