On Saturday, during his official visit at Boston College, after committing to play for the Eagles back in June, 7 months later Edwin Wilson Tara-Kolenge put on a Boston College football jersey for the first time. Tara-Kolenge, who is a Montreal, Quebec-raised linebacker has spent the past two years in the United States, 2020 in Florida with the Clearwater Academy International Knights, coached by the well known Jesse Chinchar and this year at The Loomis Chaffee School in Windsor, Connecticut. This year at Loomis Chaffee, Tara-Kolenge played in 10 games, making 86 tackles, 29 tackles for loss, 9 sacks, and forced 9 turnovers, 5 fumbles and 4 interceptions, including a pick six.
He has always lived up to the hype on the football field, and deserves all of the success coming his way as he goes into the next stop in his journey, at Boston College because of all of what he does off of the field. Tara-Kolenge has worked extremely hard to get to where he is athletically, but he’s also been a great student as well, putting emphasis on the term “student athlete”.
You now get your first looks at 6-foot-3, 225 pound linebacker Edwin Wilson Tara-Kolenge in a Boston College uniform, but it will be a picture you will get used to seeing over the next 3 or 4 years as he is ready to take over the world as a football player.
