Boston College was founded in 1863 by the Society of Jesus (Jesuits). BC has become one of the nation’s top universities, serving over 14,700 graduate and undergraduate students from across the country and around the world. The Boston College Rugby Football Club (BCRFC) founded in 1968, has an impressive 48-year history on the pitch, in the classroom, and after graduation. With league play every fall and tournaments during the spring, BCRFC fields three sides – A, B, and Developmental – with over 80 players participating each year. BCRFC nears its 50th Anniversary and has produced All Americans as well as players for the USA Eagles national team. Competing in the East Coast Rugby Conference (ECRC) each fall, the Eagles finished this season with a 9-1 record in second place only behind AIC. Highlight wins for the Eagles included victories over rivals Dartmouth, NEC, Northeastern, and UMass. Additionally, BC beat Alabama in the second annual ACRC Bowl Series in Charlotte, NC in November, with strong efforts from 11 All-Conference players. Under the guidance of former Northeast ODA Head Coach Rob Conway, and former Wales U-20 player and ARP All-Star Ceri Lleweyln, the Eagles look forward to making their second straight, and third overall, appearance in the Penn Mutual CRC’s.
