Opposing Coach High-Fives TCU QB Trevone Boykin After Ridiculous Run (Video)
TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin has been having a Heisman worthy year, as his 28 passing touchdowns and five rushing touchdowns have helped the Horned Frogs get out to a 7-0 start to the 2015 college football season.
Last night, during a Big 12 battle against the West Virginia Mountaineers, Boykin was his dominant self, passing for 388 yards and three touchdowns, and rushing for another 84 yards and a touchdown en route to a 40-10 victory.
There was simply nothing West Virginia could do but look on in awe and maybe give the senior QB some props, which is exactly what Mountaineers head coach Dana Holgorsen did, as he was spotted high-fiving Boykin after this ridiculous scramble for a first-down:
Why high-five a member of the opposing team after he just made your players look silly? Holgorsen provided an answer to that question during his post-game press conference (via ESPN):
“He made one of the best plays I’d seen in a while. He was right there, so I didn’t know what the hell else to do,” the coach said. “I could’ve started yelling at our guys, but what good is that going to do?”
Holgorsen added that the high-five stemmed from how much he has admired Boykin on and off the field over his entire career.
“He’s a great kid,” Holgorsen said. “We’ve competed hard against each other for four years.”
TCU was leading 37-10 at the time, so he’s kinda got a point. What else could he do?
