At The Heights: Herzlich invited to Senior Bowl
Mark Herzlich was talking about the present--or near future--this afternoon as he prepared for Boston College's game at Wake Forest on Saturday. But the BC senior linebacker whose football career went into eclipse last season as he battled cancer and has been only slowly returning to form this season as he dealt with a broken foot and a broken wrist, now can talk about the future--playing at the next level.
""My dad is starting to get some names of agents,''said Herzlich. "And I've been invited to the Senior Bowl) and then I'll start thinking about the (NFL) combine. So some things are going on.''
Herzlich said today that he feels as good as he has all season. And it has shown. He had his best performance of the year in last week's 16-10 win over Clemson. And he is intent on helping the Eagles make into a bowl game for the 12th straight season.
