Zak DeOssie, even though not a BC grad, is also part of the BC family.

Obviously, his father, Steve, was a BC star and taught his son the long-snapper game.

Zak was born in May 1984, when his Steve was still at BC. Heck, Zak DeOssie might possibly be the only NFL player ever conceived at Chestnut Hill?? What better connection to BC could Zak have!

ATL -- Kraft is not presently a member of BC's BOT. He is an associate trustee.

I think it might be better to call him a BC benefactor or a BC trustee, or both

All those names make me wonder why Spaz is our Head football coach?

Bill O'Brien's wife is also a BC grad. Though Bill is a short timer.

Students should make a habit of writing essay from their high school time only. As, they go on to graduation this will help them to do their assignments with ease. I do recommend opting for blog when there is hectic work load on the student and lack of time with him.
