Sharrieff Grice Retires Due to Injury
Boston College linebacker Sharrieff Grice has retired from the team due to an injury, which likely stems from a concussion he sustained during the spring game.
Grice, a native of Naugatuck, Conn., was a three-time New England Preparatory Athletic Council All New England Team honoree. He led the Kingswood Oxford School to its first-ever NEPSAC Bowl Game.
Grice did not play much outside of special teams as a freshman, but factored more heavily into his sophomore campaign. He made one start at middle linebacker, filling in for Connor Strachan against Syracuse on Oct. 22. He amassed six tackles, including one sack of quarterback Eric Dungey, as seen above.
Grice was slated to take over for Matt Milano, who graduated and was drafted by the Buffalo Bills. His opening on the strong side opens up opportunities for Kevin Bletzer, Jimmy Martin, and John Lamot to crack the starting lineup alongside Connor Strachan and Ty Schwab.
