Boston College wasn’t able to generate much offense it its 38-6 loss to Cincinnati in Thursday’s Birmingham Bowl, but Exeter’s Hunter Long caught two passes for a team-high 45 yards in the loss.

Long, a 6-foot-5, 255-pound tight end, finished the season with 28 receptions, including two touchdown catches. He led the Eagles in receiving yards (509), average yards per catch (18.1) and average receiving yards per game (39.1).

After graduating from Exeter High School, Long spent a season at Deerfield Academy before moving on to BC.
