David Boston

Split End 1996-98

In three seasons, David Boston set or tied 12 Ohio State receiving records, including most receptions (191), yards (2,855) and touchdowns (34) in a career and most receptions (85) and yards (1,435) in a season (1998). His 13 school records also includes most 100-yard receiving games in a career (13) and season (8 in 1998). In 1998, he earned first team All-America honors. But what may separate him from other receivers in school history is the way he shined in big games. With 19 seconds left to play in the 1997 Rose Bowl, he caught the game-winning touchdown in one of the most thrilling games in OSU history. In the 1998 Michigan game, he torched the Wolverines with 10-receptions for 231-yards and two touchdowns. He capped off his career by being named MVP of the 1999 Sugar Bowl.
