Star Quarterback Suspended For Bowl Game After Striking A Patrol Officer

This season has not played out how TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin envisioned. Entering the season as the Heisman Trophy favorite, Boykin’s season reached a new low with the announcement that he has been suspended for the Alamo Bowl.

Horned Frogs head coach Gary Patterson announced Boykin and receiver Preston Miller’s suspensions, saying “We are disappointed in their actions and apologize to the TCU Horned Frogs Nation, Valero Alamo Bowl and city of San Antonio.”

Boykin and some of his teammates were at a bar named Pat O’Brien’s when some people began to trash-talk the players. A scuffle broke out, resulting in Boykin and his teammates being kicked out of the establishment. Once on the street, the fight continued, and San Antonio bicycle police officers attempted to break it up.

Boykin then charged the officers, and struck one of them in the face. As a result, the star quarterback is facing charges of assaulting a police officer, resisting arrest and public intoxication.

To make matters worse, Boykin allegedly snuck out after a midnight curfew check took place at the team’s hotel. It’s a devastating blow for TCU’s chances against Oregon, but with NFL aspirations, Boykin is certainly suffering the biggest consequences.
