John Colontrelle 96' - Boston College

Boston College

John Colontrelle '96, nicknamed "Elvis" by his coaches at BC, made the final tackle --the first time the senior linebacker touched game turf-- in the Eagles' 34-17 victory, Nov. 13, over West Virginia making national news for his perseverance and team spirit.

"It was an unbelievable experience," he said. "I put in four years of hard work, but I'll tell you what, to get in there and to experience it and just to make a tackle at the end. It's something people can only write about. It's something I can't describe."
