Senior Quinton Porter will be Boston College's starting quarterback when the Eagles open the 2005 football season, according to an announcement made by head coach Tom O'Brien.
Boston College begins the 2005 season at Brigham Young on September 3.
Porter sat out the 2004 season as a redshirt after starting the first 10 games of the 2003 season. He completed 140 of 250 pass attempts for 1,764 yards and 14 touchdowns in 2003.
The Portland, Maine, resident saw limited action in his first two years, seeing action in seven games in 2001 and in four games in 2002.
The 6-foot-5-inch Porter capped 2005 spring drills with a 25-for-39 passing effort in the Jay McGillis Spring Football Game. He threw for 231 yards, including a 72-yard touchdown pass to Will Blackmon.
"Quinton has demonstrated throughout spring football that he has earned the right to quarterback Boston College for the 2005 season," O'Brien said.
Quinton Porter will direct the BC offense in 2005.
