BC honoring 'man in the red bandana' in game vs. Clemson

Welles Crowther became a familiar name in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks in New York City for his heroic acts in saving more than a dozen lives in the South Tower before tragically losing his own that day at 24 years old, as detailed in an ESPN feature five years ago.

Fifteen years after the events of 9/11, Crowther's alma mater Boston College will once again honor his memory in the football program's upcoming Saturday clash with No. 3 Clemson.

As part of the Eagles' Service Game, they will sport cleats, gloves and other accessories featuring a red bandana print. Crowther was known to carry a red bandana everywhere he went ever since he was a child, as it symbolized his relationship with his father. That included wearing it under his helmet during his time as a lacrosse player at Boston College.

The Eagles have honored Crowther each of the past two seasons in similar ways.
