Boyd RB is MVP at Nike Football Training Camp
By David Stein
IRVING, Texas -- McKinney Boyd running back Bryan Driskell won MVP honors Sunday at the Dallas Nike Football Training Camp.
With Aledo star Jonathan Gray headed to UT, the senior stands out as one of the best running backs in Dallas-Fort Worth. Driskell said he doesn't mind the attention with Gray out of the picture, but he liked the challenge.
"It's always good to have the competition, to compete for the top spot, so it's a bittersweet feeling," Driskell said with a wide grin.
With his stock on the rise, Driskell has received interest from Baylor, Texas Tech and Auburn. His work in the classroom doesn't hurt him either. Harvard, Yale and Duke have all taken interest in the speedster.
Driskell said a few schools are lining up to watch him at upcoming spring practices, and he anticipates offers from Texas Tech and Baylor.
With a possible choice looming between Ivy League and BCS teams, Driskell's father Stan said the decision is all up to his son.
"He has to go to a place where he feels comfortable," Stan said. "His mother and I talk a lot about the fact that it's not just a four-year decision for him, it will be a 40-year decision."
It may turn out to be a tough choice, but Stan said he couldn't be more excited for his son.
"Bryan has worked extremely hard to get to where he is, and it's paying off for him right now," Stan said. "I'm a proud father."
Driskell rushed for more than 2,000 yards and scored 30 touchdowns last season.
