Boston College football returns one of the nation’s best pass rushers in the country in 2017 in senior Harold Landry.
But Landry is not the lone reason that Eagles coach Steve Addazio is excited heading into the coming year. Addazio, naturally elated by having Landry back after a season with 16.5 sacks, also is expecting big things from junior defensive end Zach Allen in 2017.
“Zach Allen is going to emerge on a breakout year this year,” Addazio said per LindysSports.com. “I promise you. He is an elite player. That’ll be a mistake if you turn him into a single block.”
Allen made 36 tackles last season with 10 tackles for loss and six sacks. He also broke up four passes, recovered two fumbles and recorded three quarterback hurries.
He has played in 25 games in his first two seasons with one start last season.
Addazio also named junior Wyatt Ray as a player he expects to be a solid contributor as a pass rusher.
