Boston College to honor 9/11 hero with bandana-themed gear

Boston College will honor the life of Welles Crowther, “The Man with the Red Bandana,” when the Eagles face Clemson this week.

The program has recognized the courageous alumnus, who played lacrosse for the Eagles, with bandana-themed uniforms over the years, and will do so again Friday night.

Crowther died in the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center, but not before saving nearly 20 lives in the South Tower, using the red bandana to cover his mouth and nose from smoke.

Fans will also receive a red bandana when attending the game at Chesnut Hill.
