Boston College Football Training Camp: Rettig Shines In Scrimmage

Chase Rettig was very polished in the Boston College Eagles' first scrimmage of the season, completing 12-of-19 passes for 124 yards and two touchdowns at Alumni Stadium on Saturday evening.

"I thought there were some good things. It's like a jigsaw puzzle with all the pieces in the box; they're not connected yet," BC head coach Frank Spaziani told "We've made progress, but we still have a way to go."

Rettig's longest strike of the day was a 30-yard toss to senior wideout Colin Larmond Jr. In addition, Rettig completed passes of at least 10 yards six times, prompting praise from Spaziani.

"I think Chase showed the progress he's been making," Spaziani told "The obvious things were fine; there were some subtle things he needs to work on."

Larmond led all receivers with three catches for 53 yards, Bobby Swigert had three catches for 33 yards and Donte Elliot collected 37 receiving yards on three catches.

Junior quarterbacks Dave Shinskie and Mike Marscovetra backed up Rettig, with Shinskie completing 4-of-5 passes for 38 yards and one touchdown while Marscovetra completed 6-of-9 passes for 30 yards and a touchdown.

Rolandan Finch led the Eagles' running backs with 30 rushing yards on 10 carries. Montel Harris, who is poised to become the Eagles' all-time leading rusher this season, did not take part in the scrimmage as he continues to heal from an injury suffered late last season.

Linebacker Nick Clancy and defensive back Sean Sylvia each had four tackles.
