This Day In History: Doug Flutie’s Hail Mary Pass For BC

1203_largeDoug Flutie is one of the most notable names in college football (and that whole pro thing he did). In 1984, he had one of the best years any quarterback had in college football history.

He had the Heisman trophy won since before his famous game since voting took place prior to November 23rd even though some people think that the final game locked it up. Flutie left school as the NCAA‚??s all-time passing yardage leader with 10,579 yards and was a consensus All-America as a senior. He earned Player of the Year awards from UPI, Kodak, The Sporting News and the Maxwell Football Club.

November 23, 1984 was voted the greatest college sports game in history. Flutie’s BC Eagles beat Miami Hurricanes 47-45 in a back and forth game which ended in a last second hail mary pass to Gerard Phelan.

At the time, I was almost 3 months old and my father was holding me in his hands. When they caught the ball, my father jumped up and I almost hit my head on the ceiling. Luckily for me I didn’t, but it is still a good story.
