Before Linebackers Coach Brian Flores was a Patriot, he was an Eagle, and last Friday, Boston College, his alma mater, recognized the work he and others have done in the world of football after leaving Chestnut Hill.
Before the Boston College Eagles hosted the Clemson Tigers on Oct. 7, the school took time to celebrate alumni like Brian and former NFL quarterback Matt Hasselbeck in a pregame ceremony, honoring their careers with the Eagles and beyond.
Brian graduated from Boston College in 2003 and played linebacker for the Eagles. He was part of four bowl-winning teams, as well as part of the 2003 Big East All-Academic Team.
After graduating from Boston College, Brian stayed local and with the sport he loves, joining the Patriots as a scouting assistant in 2004. He worked his way up from a scouting assistant to a coaching assistant in 2008, eventually serving as the safeties coach before moving on to his current role.
Brian, his wife, Jennifer, and their two sons rocked maroon and gold while standing the field that propelled his football career Friday night. Boston College paid tribute to Brian's time with a video and a warm welcome. Check out the video featured on the boards before the game below.
