UNC lost a tough rivarly game to Duke last Saturday to finish up the regular season. With a 6-6 record, UNC will wait to hear news for where they will be heading for a bowl game. The Belk Bowl in Charlotte is just one of the possible locations the Heels might be headed to play their last game this season. But for now, lets hand out another round of UNC Football Helmet Stickers from the Duke game. As always, voice your opinions in the comments if you think someone else deserves a helmet sticker. And away we go!
This sticker goes to Ebron not only for his great performance Saturday but for his impressive career at UNC. Ebron developed into one of the best tight ends in the country this season, hauling in 895 yards on 55 catches. Like he has done all season, he played very well against Duke as well. He caught five passes for 121 yards, the majority of which came on a 79 yard strike from Marquise Williams. Tar Heels fans will miss Ebron for his big play ability and acrobatic catches, and are looking forward to watching him one final time in UNC blue in the bowl game.
Logan has really developed into UNC’s running back of the future late this season. Going into this year’s campaign, many pundits including myself were unsure who would step up at running back. After Romar Morris and AJ Blue struggled with injuries, Logan ran well in expanding playing time throughout the season and solidified himself as a viable option at RB. Against the Dukies, he would go for 93 yards on the ground, averaging 5.8 yards per carry. Carolina fans are expecting big things from Logan going forward in the bowl and next season. Great game from Logan this week.
Before you angrily post in comments about that interception Boston dropped and how it probably cost UNC the game, hear me out. Yes, Boston dropped that key interception, but he had 15 tackles in his final game at Kenan Stadium and played his heart out on senior day. And Heel’s fans should know that Boston would absolutely love to have a second shot at making that interception and securing a win for Carolina. We shouldn’t punish him for that one bad play but rather reward Boston for 15 tackles and a great overall career at UNC.
One final story on Boston- back when UNC played LSU in 2010 in the Chick-Fil-A Kickoff game, Boston had an interception and ESPN’s commentators remarked something to the effect of “This Boston kid is going to be a really good player one day.” After watching him this season, there’s no doubt in my mind those announcers were right. Yes he made some mistakes and missed a couple of tackles, but he was a darn good player for UNC all four years he played. Great career in Carolina blue for Boston and UNC fans are going to miss watching him play after this season.
