Boston College Eagles head coach Steve Addazio announced this week that quarterback Josh Bordner will switch to wide receiver for the 2014 football season.
According to Addazio, the 6-foot-4, 220-pound Bordner has the size and skills to make an impact at receiver:
He’s really tough, really smart, he’s got unbelievable ball skills and hands, he can fill that hybrid receiver role a little bit. He belongs on the football field. It’s our job to find that right spot for him.
He doesn’t want to carry a clipboard and stand on the sidelines. He was like, ‘Coach, I want to get on the field, and I want to play ball’ (ESPN).
Bordner hardly saw the field for the Eagles last season, appearing in only two games. He completed one of his two attempted passes against North Carolina for a total of two yards, and he posted a slightly better stat line — one completed pass for 15 yards — against the Arizona Wildcats in the AdvocCare V100 Bowl.
