Tuggle's son commits to Boston College

June 26, 2007

Duluth - There weren't many scholarship offers for former Atlanta Falcon linebacker Jessie Tuggle when he decided to attend Valdosta State almost 25 years ago.

But not for his son Justin Tuggle who is one of top high school quarterbacks in the state.

Justin Tuggle, who plays for Northview High in Duluth, is headed to the ACC after commiting to Boston College.

The younger Tuggle told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that the chance to play early is a big reason he is signing with the Eagles.

Next month, Jessie Tuggle will be inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame.
