Chestnut Hill, Mass. - The Boston College football team will be led by graduate wide receiver Josh Bordner, senior linebacker Sean Duggan, graduate center Andy Gallik and graduate defensive back Dominique Williams. Head coach Steve Addazio made the announcement to the team on Monday evening.

Bordner made the transition to wide receiver in 2014 after serving as the backup quarterback for three years. The 6-foot-4, 230-pound product from Sykesville, Md., was 4-for-8, throwing for 61 yards and also ran for 100 yards on nine career carries, scoring two touchdowns in 2011. He earned his bachelor's degree in human development in May 2013 and is currently pursuing a master's from the Carroll School of Management.

 

Duggan has registered 79 career tackles in his Boston College career. The Cincinnati, Ohio, native, a 6-foot-4, 250-pounder, saw action in 12 games last season on defense and special teams. He recorded six tackles and a forced fumble against Notre Dame on Nov. 10, 2012 in a start and notched a career-high nine tackles at Army while playing in 103 snaps on Oct. 6 that same year. He is currently enrolled as a finance major in the Carroll School of Management.

 

Gallik is a three-year starting center from Evergreen Park, Ill. The 6-foot-3, 304-pound lineman has started 28 career games at The Heights and was named to the All-Atlantic Coast Conference preseason team. He was also named to the Rimington Award Watch List and captured 2013 spring MVP honors from ESPN.com. During the Eagles' 7-6 season, Gallik started all 13 games and earned All-ACC third-team honors from the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association. He was a key component of an offensive line that helped produce a rushing attack that averaged 212.5 yards per game, a mark good for second in the ACC and 20th among all teams in college football.  BC averaged 5.5 yards per rush and a 142.83 passing efficiency. Gallik earned his undergraduate degree in sociology and is currently working on his master's in corporate systems.

 

Williams has made 83 total tackles in his BC career, playing 34 games in the Maroon and Gold. The Brockton, Mass., native recorded his first career interception against Florida State on Sept. 28, 2013. The 6-foot, 220-pound defensive back played in all 13 games for the Eagles last season, registered 65 tackles, including 44 solo and 3.4 tackles for loss. He recorded a career-high 13 in the victory at New Mexico State on Nov. 23. After earning his bachelor's degree in communication, Williams is pursuing a master's in psychology.

 

The Eagles open the 2014 season on Saturday, Aug. 30 with a 3 p.m. kickoff against Massachusetts at Gillette Stadium. The game will be broadcast on ESPN3.
