Boykin and Doctson Named Maxwell Award Semifinalists

Nov. 2, 2015

PHILADELPHIA, Pa. -- Maxwell Football Club President Ron Jaworski has announced TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin and wide receiver Josh Doctson as among 20 semifinalists for the 79th Maxwell Award, recognizing the Collegiate Player of the Year.

TCU is the only school to have more than one semifinalist. Boykin and Mississippi State's Dak Prescott are the lone repeat semifinalists from 2014.

Boykin ranks second nationally in total offense at 431.4 yards per game and third in passing efficiency with a 177.2 rating. He's completing 66.7 percent of his attempts with 28 touchdown passes and just five interceptions. He’s averaging 365.9 yards per game in the air and is also TCU's second-leading rusher with 524 yards on a 6.0 per carry mark.

The Dallas native has broken Andy Dalton's TCU career records for touchdown passes (83), total offense (12,041 yards) and touchdowns responsible for (108). Boykin's current streak of six straight games with at least 300 yards passing and 40 yards rushing is the longest in the FBS over the last 20 seasons.

Doctson has set TCU single-season records with 71 receptions for 1,250 yards and 14 touchdowns. He has joined Texas Tech's Michael Crabtree as the only receivers in the last 20 years to have six straight games with at least 100 yards receiving and two touchdown catches.

Doctson is one of just seven players in Big 12 history with multiple seasons of 1,000 yards receiving and 10 touchdown grabs. The senior from Mansfield, Texas, leads the nation with 156.3 receiving yards per game. He tops all active FBS players with 34 career touchdown catches.
