TCU Duo Named Walter Camp All-Americans


Dec. 10, 2015

NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- The Walter Camp Football Foundation has announced TCU wide receiver Josh Doctson as a first-team All-American with quarterback Trevone Boykin a second-team pick.

Walter Camp is the nation's oldest All-America team.

Doctson and Boykin give TCU 10 Walter Camp All-America selections in the last eight seasons, including Boykin as a second-team honoree last year. Other recent Horned Frogs to be Walter Camp All-Americans include defensive end Jerry Hughes (2008-09), safety Tejay Johnson (2010), center Jake Kirkpatrick (2010), cornerback Jason Verrett (2012-13) and linebacker Paul Dawson (2014).

Doctson is also a USA Today All-American as well as a finalist for the Biletnikoff Award and Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award. He leads the nation with 132.7 receiving yards per game. He is the only player in the country to rank in the top 6 in receiving yards per game, receptions per game (7.9) and touchdown catches (14). His 79 receptions, 1,327 yards receiving and 14 touchdowns are TCU single-season records. The TD catches are tied for fourth nationally, while he is sixth in receptions per game.

Doctson has joined two-time Biletnikoff Award winner Michael Crabtree 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 is tied for the national lead with 56 catches of at least 10 yards.

Doctson received Walter Camp National Offensive 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 eight players in Big 12 history to have multiple seasons of at least 1,000 yards receiving and 10 touchdown catches.

Boykin is a finalist for the Davey O'Brien Award, Manning Award and Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award. Boykin is 22-2 as a starting quarterback the last two seasons. He ranks second in the nation in total offense at 380.6 yards per game. He has completed 64.9 percent of his passes for 3,575 yards with 31 touchdowns. He is also TCU's second-leading rusher with 612 yards on a 5.0 per carry mark with nine scores.

In the red zone this season, Boykin has 17 touchdown passes, no interceptions and eight rushing touchdowns.

The senior from Dallas has been involved in five games when the score was in single digits in the fourth quarter and is 22-of-32 (68.8 percent) for 270 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions.

In the regular-season finale, playing at 75 percent healthy, Boykin led TCU to a 28-21 double-overtime win over Baylor in a driving rainstorm. He ran for a touchdown in the first overtime and threw a game-winning TD pass in the second OT. He also 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 per game passing and 50 rushing. Boykin has done it twice (2014, 2015). The others to accomplish the feat 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.

Boykin 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 (86), passing yards (10,728), completions (830), total offense (12,777) and touchdowns responsible for (114).

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

Doctson and Boykin will receive their TCU degree at the Dec. 19 campus commencement.
