Boston College Football unveils uniforms for the 2020 Red Bandana game. The annual game honors Nyack resident, 9/11 hero and former BC lacrosse player Welles Crowther. He was 24 when he died on Sept. 11, 2001.
Welles is credited with saving as many as 18 lives during the September 11 attacks while wearing his Red Bandana. Crowther’s family was unaware of the details of his heroism, until Allison Crowther read Judy Wein’s firsthand account in The New York Times of being saved by a man in a red bandana.
