Boston College offers Shepherd Hill's Lindstrom

12/19/2013

Shepherd Hill junior offensive lineman Chris Lindstrom received his second Division 1 offer this afternoon, from Boston College, the Rams' coaching staff told ESPNBoston.com.

And integral interior pulling guard in the Rams' vaunted "double wing" scheme, 6-foot-5, 240-pound Lindstrom was voted the Southern Worcester County League Player of the Year after helping the Rams earn the No. 1 overall seed in Division 4 Central. As a team, the Rams ran for over 3,000 yards and 36 touchdowns. Lindstrom was also named to ESPN Boston's annual All-State Team last week.

Earlier this month, Lindstrom received his first FBS offer, from Old Dominion. UMass, UConn and Kansas State are among the other FBS programs showing varying degrees of interest, while a number of local FCS schools such as Bryant have also inquired.

Lindstrom becomes the fourth in-state product from the Class of 2015 to receive an offer from the Eagles, joining Lawrence Academy tight end Chris Garrison, Amherst athlete Taj-Amir Torres and Xaverian defensive end Joe Gaziano, the latter ESPN Boston's 2013 Defensive Player of the Year.

Lindstrom's father, Chris Sr., is the head coach of Shepherd Hill, and a Hall of Famer at Boston University. He spent three seasons in the NFL from 1983-87 with the San Francisco 49ers, Kansas City Chiefs, Cincinnati Bengals and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
