Boykin: 'One mistake doesn't define me'

Trevone Boykin is moving on.

Trevone Boykin isn't shy to talk about his arrest in San Antonio that kept him from playing in the Alamo Bowl.

Instead, he's opening up about it with the media, saying that he's determined to put that moment in the past and look forward to the future. He talked to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram on Monday night at a dinner for the Davey O'Brien Award (Clemson's Deshaun Watson won).

"It's not going to be easily overcome," Boykin said. "But it's something that you just have to take on forward with a straight mind and just own up to it. Know that you made the wrong decision and then just keep pushing forward."

He's pretty set on playing quarterback in the NFL, too, despite rumblings that he might switch to wide receiver if he makes a pro roster. He'll be showing off his stuff at the NFL Combine next week, Feb. 23, in Indianapolis.

"I'm looking forward to going to Indy and fully participate, like I said, in every drill, and show that I can play quarterback," he said.
