July 8, 2013
Chestnut Hill, Mass. - Three former football players make up the Class of 2013 that will be inducted into the Varsity Club Hall of Fame on Friday, October 4 at Conte Forum. The group will be recognized at halftime of Saturday's football game against Army on Saturday, October 5.
Mike Cloud '99, Stalin Colinet '97 and Dick Cremin '65 are three of the eight members of the 2013 class.
Cloud, who played in 45 games, was named BC's Eagle of the Year in 1998. Cloud, a native of Portsmouth, R.I., finished his career at the Heights as the all-time leading rusher with 3,597 yards. He also had 25 career touchdowns and averaged 5.9 yards a carry. As a senior, Cloud rushed for 1,726 yards and scored a career-high 14 touchdowns. He was a consensus All-America first-team honoree and earned the Gold Helmet Award and was an All-Big East first-team honoree.
Colinet, a native of Bronx, N.Y., was an All-Big East defensive tackle. He was a member of the 1993 Carquest Bowl team, as well as the 1994 Aloha Bowl team. Colinet, a team captain, earned the Bulger Lowe Award for the best defensive player in New England in 1996. Colinet recorded 54 tackles and had nine sacks as a senior. He finished his career with 148 total tackles and 14 sacks. Colinet was the first Dominican born player to be drafted and play in the NFL. He played six seasons, finishing his career with the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2002.
A two-way player at guard and linebacker, Cremin was a stalwart lineman on the successful BC teams in 1962, 1963 and 1964. Among his top games were the 1964 victory over nationally-ranked Syracuse and an impressive defensive performance at Tennessee. The Eagles won 20 of 28 games during Cremin's three-year varsity career. Cremin's on-field success came in spite of a playing with Hemangioma, a medical disorder that required multiple corrective surgeries and constant medical attention to his legs. Though he battled his medical condition daily, Cremins never missed a practice or a game. An All-New England and All-East honoree, Cremins attended law school and is currently a highly-successful attorney in Florida.
The other members of the Class of 2013 are Jessalyn Deveny '05 (basketball), Ken Hodge Jr. (ice hockey), Anne T. Kavanagh '81 (soccer), Chris Lambert '12 (baseball) and George Lermond '25 (track & field, cross country).
