The SEC is full of incredible talent. Whether it is offense or defense, the SEC has plenty of guys who will eventually be playing on Sunday. In this series, we take a look at the All-Purpose Animals – the guys who make plays in every facet of the game.
Today we are going to take a good look at corner and all-purpose animal Brandon Boykin from the Georgia Bulldogs.
Boykin has made several big-time plays thus far in 2011, and he has been recognized for the first three weeks of the season as being on the Paul Hornug Weekly Honor Roll.
Boykin’s primary position lies in the Bulldogs’ defensive secondary as a corner, but his specialty is in the kickoff return game and sneaking in on offense to take jet sweeps to the house. Boykin has 13 total tackles and one interception on the year defensively.
Boykin is currently third in the SEC in kick-off returns with 15 for 374 yards and no touchdowns thus far. Not only is Boykin dynamic in the kickoff return game, but he has been taking some snaps on the offensive side of the football as well this season. Boykin has four carries for 95 yards and a touchdown, and he is the Bulldogs’ fourth leading rusher right now.
Boykin is leading the Georgia Bulldogs in all-purpose yardage with 481 total yards.
Here are some video highlights of the all-purpose animal that is Brandon Boykin:
