Nick Boykin stands out in crowd. At nearly 6-3, 205 pounds he is pretty hard to miss especially in a small place like Sebastopol, Mississippi. Boykin has put his size to good use for the SHS football team. As more and more teams go to the spread offense, players like Boykin are becoming more popular with college recruiters. Nick hopes a strong summer will result in extending his playing career.

"I am getting letters from Southern Miss, Mississippi State, Oregon, East Central and Delta State," said Boykin. "Southern Miss sent me some football tickets this past season. I went to see them play Tulane and Virginia."

The time spent on the Hattiesburg campus appears to have made a positive impression on Nick.

"I had a good time down there," said Boykin of his football weekend visits. "It's a lot different than my small town. I had a good time both times."

Sebastopol made it to the south state championship game a season ago and the play of their talented tight end was a big reason why.

"I feel like I had a pretty good year," said Nick. "We probably only threw around 200 passes all year and I had 12 catches for over 200 yards and one touchdown. I had three two point conversions."

Boykin plans to take in some summer camps this year like he has in years past in hopes of improving his stock as a player and prospect.

"I have been to camps at East Central and Mississippi State," said Nick. "I worked on a lot of things."

College options have been scarce for Boykin so far, but with a solid showing this summer and fall that is sure to change.

The personable Nick has a good idea about what he is looking for in a college home.

"I would like to stay close to home," said Boykin. "I want to major in petroleum engineering. I am pretty good with mathmatics.

"I want to play on offense for sure. I have had some college coaches tell me they want to use me in that Dallas Clark role."
