Kudos to Scheidegger

It’s not easy making a varsity Division 1 collegiate wrestling lineup, especially coming from a small school in New Hampshire. But that’s exactly what Sanborn graduate Jon Scheidegger of Newton, N.H., has done at Sacred Heart University.

Scheidegger is the starter at 165 pounds and, while he’s taken some lumps, he’s also recorded his share of wins, including an exciting 13-11 decision against Davidson that keyed Sacred Heart’s 22-19 victory.

BC at Merrimack tonight

Anyone who wants to witness one of the top programs and classiest coaches around should be at Merrimack College tonight when the Warriors host Jerry York’s Boston College Eagles.

York, in his 41st year as head coach, ranks second all-time in college hockey in career wins, entering the season with 913 victories. He has won four national titles at BC and also won one, in 1984, when he was head coach at Bowling Green.

This year’s BC squad has a number of talented youngsters, including freshman Ryan Fitzgerald of North Reading.

Clancy performs well

It wasn’t a flawless performance by any means but Merrimack College’s Joe Clancy of Newburyport had the best numbers of any quarterback in the Medal of Honor Bowl in Charlestown the week before last. He completed 4 of 10 passes for 88 yards.

Promising start

First-year Boston College football coach Steve Addazio got off to a promising start on the recruiting front last week. Two University of Florida graduates — quarterback Tyler Murphy and offensive lineman Ian Silberman — have transferred to Boston College for the spring semester along with five freshmen, all of whom will be eligible for the 2014 season. Murphy and Silberman each enter their final year of eligibility.

Murphy is a 6-foot-2, 206-pound quarterback who started six games for the Gators in 2013. He completed 112-of-185 passing attempts for 1,216 yards and six touchdowns. He also recorded three rushing touchdowns. A native of Wethersfield, Conn., he saw action in 12 games during his four-year career at Florida (2010-13).
