TCU Duo Receives Walter Camp Honor


Nov. 18, 2015

NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- The Walter Camp Football Foundation has announced TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin and wide receiver Josh Doctson as two of 15 “Players to Watch” for its 2015 Player of the Year Award, the fourth-oldest college football award in the nation.

TCU is the only school to have two players included.

Boykin is second nationally in total offense at 402.3 yards per game. He has completed 65.8 percent of his passes for 3,427 yards with 29 touchdowns. He is also TCU's second-leading rusher with 596 yards on a 5.5 per carry mark with eight scores.

Boykin has 16 touchdown passes, no interceptions and seven rushing touchdowns in the red zone this season. He has been involved in four games when the score was in single digits in the fourth quarter. He is 18-of-25 (72.0 percent) for 259 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions. He led the Horned Frogs to game-winning drives on their final possession in road wins at Texas Tech and Kansas State.

Since 2009, only four times has a quarterback averaged over 300 yards passing and 50 yards rushing. Boykin has done it twice. The others were Heisman Trophy winners Robert Griffin III and Johnny Manziel.

Boykin's streak of seven consecutive games with at least 300 yards passing and 40 yards rushing earlier this season was the longest in the nation over the last 20 years.

Since 1996, Boykin leads all players nationally with six career games of 400 yards passing and 40 yards rushing. No one else has more than four. Boykin accomplished the feat four times in the last eight games.

The Dallas native is one of just eight quarterbacks in FBS history with at least 10,000 yards passing and 1,500 yards rushing. He has broken Andy Dalton's TCU career records for touchdown passes (84), passing yards (10,580), total offense (12,613) and touchdowns responsible for (111). He is tied with Dalton for completions (812).

Boykin and Doctson's 26 career touchdown passes together rank second nationally among active duos.

Doctson leads the nation with 1,327 receiving yards while his 14 touchdown catches are tied for second. His 79 receptions are fifth. He is the only player nationally to rank in the top 5 in all three categories which have set TCU single-season records.

Doctson has joined two-time Biletnikoff Award winner Michael Crabree from Texas Tech as the only players in the last 20 years to have six straight games with at least 100 yards receiving and multiple touchdown catches.

Eleven of Doctson's 14 touchdown receptions have come with the score in single digits. He tops the nation with 56 catches of at least 10 yards. His 62 receptions in conference play are the most in the nation.

Doctson received Walter Camp National Player of the Week honors after his 18 receptions for 267 yards and three touchdowns in TCU's 55-52 win at Texas Tech.

Doctson is one of just seven players in Big 12 history to have multiple seasons of at least 1,000 yards receiving and 10 touchdown catches.
