Boston College football hosted its first of three intrasquad scrimmages of the 2012 spring season at noontime today inside the Alumni Stadium bubble. Here are a few notes from the afternoon's scrimmage:
Sophomore wide receiver Spiffy Evans caught two touchdown passes on the afternoon - one from sophomore quarterback Josh Bordner and one from junior quarterback Chase Rettig. Both touchdown receptions were of approximately 20 yards or more.
Sophomore quarterback Chase Rettig, the team's starting QB in all 11 games last fall, also connected with 6-foot-6, 255-pound senior tight end Chris Pantale and junior wide receiver Alex Amidon on 20-yard touchdown passes down the seam during the afternoon's two-hour scrimmage.
Sophomore running back Tahj Kimble turned in a nifty 20-yard touchdown run while junior running back Andre Williams had a 25-yard touchdown burst to highlight the team's offensive output.
Brian Miller, a redshirt freshman tight end from Andover, Mass., listed on the spring depth chart at receiver, drew praise when prompted about the position adjustment from head coach Frank Spaziani following the scrimmage.
"Brian [Miller]'s got some athletic skills," Spaziani said. "This is the first time he's really scrimmaged since he has had a horrific knee injury. For him to get through this is a big step. We're excited about it."
Multiple football alums were in attendance at the scrimmage, including Rich Gunnell, Luke Kuechly, Ifeanyi Momah, Ryan Quigley and Mark Spinney.
BC will also scrimmage on Saturday, March 24 before hosting its annual spring game on Saturday, March 31 at 1 p.m.
