Boykin on Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award Watch List
Aug. 20, 2014
A junior from West Mesquite High School, Boykin was the first player in TCU history and the only player in the nation last season to record a 100-yard rushing game, 100-yard receiving game and 200-yard passing game. With his 101 yards rushing at Texas Tech, he was the first TCU quarterback since 1987 to run for 100 yards. He also became the first Horned Frog in history to lead in passing yards (133) and receptions (3) in the same game during a 38-17 win over Southeastern Louisiana.
Boykin ran for all three of TCU's touchdowns, including a 1-yard carry for the go-ahead score with 38 seconds to play, in a 21-17 win at Iowa State. His career-best 11 receptions for 100 yards against West Virginia were the most by a Horned Frog in 13 seasons under head coach Gary Patterson, the highest total by a TCU player since 1995 and tied for the eighth most in a game in TCU history.
Boykin placed second on the Horned Frogs last season in rushing yards (313) and passing yards (1,198) while ranking fifth in receptions (26).
As a redshirt freshman in 2012, Boykin became the only quarterback in TCU history to pass for four touchdowns in consecutive games. He accomplished the feat in a 49-21 win at Baylor and the following week versus Texas Tech.
