View Full Profile should be regarded as one the nation's elite quarterbacks. Dinich thinks if he goes 2-1 against Georgia, South Carolina, and FSU - "he shouldn’t just earn a trip to the Heisman ceremony, he should win the trophy."
He ranks first in school history in passing yards, passing yards per game, total offense, total offense per game, passing touchdowns, first in passing efficiency and first in touchdown responsibility. He holds nine of the top-11 single-game passing yardage totals in school history.
It’s probably safe to say he’s one of the best quarterbacks Clemson has ever seen.
Boyd last year was the ACC’s overall and offensive player of the year after he threw for an ACC-record 36 touchdowns. He was also responsible for another ACC-record 46 touchdowns. And he’s not done yet. Boyd enters this fall within reach of most of the major career offensive records in the ACC, including touchdown passes, touchdown responsibility, total offense and passing yardage.
