“Looking back on it now,”
said Brian Fitzgibbon, Tim's friend and classmate, “what impresses
me most about Tim is that he set a high goal for himself and went out
and accomplished it. When he was a freshman, he said to us that
he wanted to earn a scholarship to play football at BC; and then he
did it. When you really think about it, that is absolutely
amazing... especially given that he hadn't yet hit his growth
spurt and had to deal with rehabilitation from a major knee
operation. -- I cannot think of a better example of
leadership, dedication and staying focused on a goal than my good
friend, Tim Bulman.”
“Tim's leadership of the team
went well beyond his physical assets,” added Tim Feeney, “his
commitment to getting better was really a driving factor on improving
every player on the team (from the starting QB to the scout team D
tackle) - he won every sprint at practice and was the first one in
the weight room every time we had a workout.”
