Josh Boyce: Video Highlights for Former TCU WR
A first-team All-Mountain West Conference selection in 2011, TCU receiver Josh Boyce followed up his sophomore season with an equally productive 2012 despite the offense being led by an unproven freshman quarterback.
The junior was a pass-catching machine for the Horned Frogs, leading the team in receptions (66), receiving yards (891) and TD catches (seven).
With speed and strength to match, Boyce now has his sights set on the NFL.
Here are 10 video highlights for the former TCU receiver.
10. 31-Yard TD Catch vs. West Virginia, 2012
There was nothing spectacular about this score by Boyce in the second quarter, but it was a routine play you'd expect from a smart receiver.
Boyce proceeded to beat his man deep and then get behind the safety for the easy 31-yard grab. West Virginia head coach Dana Holgorsen went berserk after the the touchdown.
9. 15-Yard TD Catch vs. Baylor, 2012
Already up 14 in the fourth quarter, TCU continued to lay it on the Bears with more than nine minutes to go in the game.
Having already thrown three TD passes earlier, Trevone Boykin tossed up another to Boyce in the corner of the end zone for 15 yards. Boyce had one receiving TD and a rushing TD against Baylor in the win.
8. One-Handed Catch vs. Virginia, 2012
Even though this play didn't go for much yardage, Boyce couldn't keep from making it a highlight by catching the pass one-handed.
In all honesty, it was just a great tackle that kept Boyce from taking this one further downfield. Give him the space and he'll do the rest.
7. 26-Yard TD Catch vs. Utah, 2010
Boyce was one lucky guy from his school days to his first year at TCU, having been paired with the likes of Robert Griffin III at Copperas Cove High School and Andy Dalton in his freshman year.
The Horned Frogs crushed then-ranked No. 5 Utah 47-7 as Dalton passed for 355 yards and three TDs. Boyce caught two of those touchdown passes, including this 26-yarder on the opening drive.
Even with a man draped all over him, Boyce concentrated on the ball and hauled it in for the score.
6. Sideline Catch vs. West Virginia, 2012
With his team in need of a third-down conversion, Boyce had no trouble being the guy to get the call.
Trevone Boykin, who was absolutely drilled on the play, heaved the ball to the sidelines, where a well-positioned Boyce made the sideline grab. It was a pretty play that turned out just like it was called.
5. 61-Yard Catch on 3rd-and-9 vs. Michigan State, 2012
The Horned Frogs were stunned in a heartbreaking loss to Michigan State in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl after leading 13-0 at halftime.
Boyce, who caught five passes for 91 yards, came up with this little dandy as he turned what should have been a short gain into a 61-yard play. The Spartans gave Boyce too much room to work with after the catch, and he burned them for the big gain.
4. 94-Yard TD Catch vs. West Virginia, 2012
With his quarterback backed up in his own end zone for a 2nd-and-19, Boyce found himself a soft spot in West Virginia's defense where only he could get to Trevone Boykin's pass, after which he ran more than 60 yards for a score.
As soon as Boyce caught the pass, it was off to the races. It was a great play by Boykin to evade pressure and get the throw off, but an even better play by Boyce to get himself open and help out his quarterback.
3. Fingertips TD Catch vs. Iowa State
Without the services of Casey Pachall, who was suspended by the team, the Horned Frogs were unable to get a "W" against Iowa State.
Boyce was held scoreless but still managed to get his hands on six passes—one of which was just a yard short from being a touchdown. In this 30-yard grab, Boyce showed off his ability to fully extend his 5'11" frame.
2. 66 Yards to the House vs. Grambling State, 2012
In a shutout of Grambling State during the 2012 season, Boyce pulled down two scores for the Horned Frogs as they proceeded to score 56 unanswered points on the helpless Tigers.
Boyce recorded both of his touchdowns during the second quarter—one for 12 yards and another for 66 yards. In his longest score of the game, Boyce took a short swing pass from Casey Pachall and left a trail of bewildered defenders in his dust.
1. Game-Winning Catch in Double Overtime vs. West Virginia, 2012
In a shocking upset of then-ranked No. 21 West Virginia, the Horned Frogs matched the Mountaineers blow for blow on the road.
It all came down to the wire, however, when TCU punched in a score in the second overtime, after which head coach Gary Patterson decided to go all in with a two-point conversion attempt. West Virginia's defense clearly wasn't ready as Trevone Boykin hit Boyce for the game-winner.
Despite an underthrown ball, Boyce managed to get his hands underneath it and deliver in a crucial moment.
