Yesterday, Xaverian Brothers ’22 offensive tackle Jack Funke committed to the Boston College Eagles. For the rising junior, he explained the decision was a rather easy one to make. He has BC in his blood, as both his parents were Eagles and played varsity athletics at the school. His father, Jerod, was a defensive lineman who started ten games for BC in 1995. His mother, Gabrielle Bing (’98) was a two sport athlete at BC, playing both field hockey and lacrosse. Jack has been around BC all his life “I’ve grown up going to games” he told BC Bulletin.

The young 6’6, 290 pound offensive tackle knew he always wanted to play at Boston College, and was impressed by the coaching staff. “I am also very excited about what Coach Hafley is doing with the program and things are really looking up for the team.”
