Pos: QB Height: 6-1 Weight: 225 Hometown: Hampton, VA (Phoebus HS) Years Played: 2009 - 2013
“Physically, he looks like a WILL ‘backer with those big shoulders and traps,” Whitfield says of the 6-1, 225-pounder. “Sometimes with guys like that, they tend to wear it like, 'This is who I am.' So he wouldn't really step into the throw because he felt like he didn't need to. He'd just gun it.”
To remedy that, Whitfield worked on Boyd's footwork and base, while incorporating more of the Tiger's lower body into his delivery. The coach rigged a bungee chord to the front of Boyd and would pull him forward to prompt the QB to stride toward his target. If Boyd didn't, Whitfield says, the Clemson star couldn't help but fall forward.
"His arm is huge," says Whitfield, adding that because of that Boyd is "less inclined to be detailed with his legs." Guys who aren't as physically impressive or blessed with such a powerful arm tend to do a better job of incorporating their entire body into their delivery to maximize what they do have. "I keep telling him to 'work like you're 5-11, 185.'"
