A Boston College Hero on 911

September 11 is always going to be a day that sticks out on the calendar. Those who lived through that day will remember the tragic events and lost loved ones of that fall morning in their own ways. <p> I was a junior at Boston College living off campus, so to look back and hear the story of Welles Crowther, who also became known as the Man in the Red Bandana, is particularly moving. ESPN's Outside the Lines did a wonderful job telling the story of one of the thousands of heroes on that day.
