Boston College Hosts Annual Jay McGillis Memorial Spring Football Game

Boston College will host the 19th annual Jay McGillis Spring Football Game at Alumni Stadium on Saturday, April 16, 2011 at 1:00 p.m. Admission to the game is free.

The spring game festivities begin on campus at 11 a.m. with Family Fun Day on the Flynn Complex Lawn. Immediately after the game, players will be available for a one-hour autograph session on the field at Alumni Stadium.

Here's a look at the official video promo for the spring game from Eagle Marketing.

This year's game will serve as the unofficial debut for the Eagles' new offensive coordinator, Kevin Rodgers, formerly the quarterbacks coach for the Minnesota Vikings. Rodgers is replacing Gary Tranquill, who retired after last season.

Eagles coach Frank Spaziani is expected to stick with freshman quarterback Chase Rettig entering the new season. Rettig, who was solid in the Eagles' first spring scrimmage but struggled in the second scrimmage, threw for 1,238 yards and six touchdowns after taking over as Boston College's staring quarterback last season.
