2012 Small School Offensive Player of the Year: Tyler Boyd, ClairtonWritten by: David Mika on Tuesday, January 1st, 2013
The last time Clairton came up short on the scoreboard was in 2009. Laurel won the season opener 15-8. After that loss Clairton went on to win a PIAA state record and current longest winning streak in the country, 63 games.
One of the biggest reasons for Clairton’s success the last four years is the 6-foot-2, 175-pound senior. As a three year starter his team won 48 games without a loss. Clairton won its fifth consecutive WPIAL Class A championship and fourth consecutive PIAA championship.
It seem Boyd played every where on the field this season, playing at quarterback, defensive back and did punt and kick returns.
This season he finished with 2,567 yards rushing on 215 carries and caught 12 passes for 218 yards. Boyd had 51 touchdowns and 326 points scored this season.
He finished his career with 5,755 yards rushingÂ and 117 career touchdowns, which is a WPIAL record.
Boyd will be playing in the US Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio on January 5th.
