Beekman is the first Eagle to earn an ACC individual award.

Dec. 5, 2006


GREENSBORO, N.C. - Boston College's Josh Beekman has been awarded the 2006 Jacobs Blocking Trophy, Atlantic Coast Conference Commissioner John Swofford announced today.

The Jacobs Blocking Trophy has been awarded annually since 1953 to the player voted the most outstanding blocker in the ACC by a poll of the league's head coaches and defensive coordinators. The trophy is given in memory of William P. Jacobs, who served as president of Presbyterian College from 1935 to 1945.

A first-team All-ACC selection this season, Beekman, a 6-1, 321-pound senior, started nine games at guard and three games at center for the 23rd-ranked Eagles. A three-year starter, and a second-team All-ACC selection in 2005, Beekman leads a balanced Boston College offense that is second in the ACC averaging 359.0 yards and 26.1 points per game.

"This is a tremendous honor for Josh," said Boston College head coach Tom O'Brien. "He has demonstrated throughout his career that he is one of the top offensive linemen in the country and he is very deserving of this award. We are grateful that the coaches in the ACC have recognized his outstanding play."

The Amsterdam, N.Y. native has started 36 straight games and 38 for his career and was named ACC Offensive Lineman of the Week following the Virginia Tech game on Oct. 12 and the Duke contest on Nov. 11, and has been the leading grader for Boston College several times this season.

Beekman is the first Boston College player to win the Jacobs Blocking Trophy.
