Coach Boynton and his veteran players have dropped Keylan Boone’s name multiple times the past few weeks when asked about young players who have been the most impressive. Monday was no different when Boynton was asked about the scrimmage.
“Keylan Boone has kind of popped his head up amongst the freshmen here the last couple of weeks in ways that I probably didn’t anticipate,” Boynton said.
Senior Trey Reeves, son of Cowboys legend Bryant “Big Country” Reeves, was met with high-fives and applause from his teammates during the scrimmage on his way to the bench immediately after he drew a charge on defense.
Boynton said Reeves was the MVP of the scrimmage, but it was less about what he did during his limited playing time. Reeves didn’t play a lot of minutes and Boynton doesn’t anticipate him playing much during the season, but Boynton took notice of his engagement on the sidelines.
