THE DOPE: The Eagles expect to be flying high this season, and if they don't get grounded in their first game they could easily win everything. Coach Mike Holovak has a big, rugged squad with a lot of returning veterans. The apple of his eye is Billy Donlan, the little senior quarterback from Boston, a fancy passer and daring play-caller. But Donlan is not alone on this team. He's got a lot of good runners to send through on his favorite off-guard play and some outstanding linemen to spring them loose. BC's Achilles' heel this year may be lack of experience. They're looking for a lot of help from sophomores, especially at the tackles. But Holovak has come up with two good ones in brothers Steve (210 pounds) and Leon (240 pounds) Bennett. The Eagles should have a happy autumn.
