Boyd hails from Katy, Texas which is where he played his high school football. In 2o15, the Katy high school football program went 16-0 claiming the Class 6A, Division II football championship.
The 6’4″, 215 pound Boyd specializes on the defensive side of the ball. He’s a versatile player whose strengths fall at both inside and outside linebacker.
Scout.com noted that Boyd is a well-rounded football player whose strengths include run stopping and tackling technique.

The Broncos graduated all three of their starting linebackers from last season: Tanner Vallejo, Darren Lee, and Ben Weaver. This could mean Boyd might see some significant playing time in the upcoming season.
Boyd will come into a line backing core lead by soon-to-be senior, Joe Martarano.
Other returners include: Blake Whitlock, Leighton Vander Esch, and Tyson Maeva.
