Murray's Boone lets his play do the talking
MURRAY, KY -- Murray High School's Dylan Boone is perhaps the best player in western Kentucky that no one is talking about.
"I don't really think about things like that," the senior quarterback said. "I like to let my playing do the talking for myself."
A standout player on both offense and defense, he has become the Tigers go to player over the past few seasons. In the past three games he has accounted for more than 300 yards and four scores.
"He is a big playmaker for us," Jacob Mayes said, a senior on the Murray football team. "He is always there to make a big play when we need it."
"I am confident I can go out and compete with all the competition that is out there," Boone said.
And most would agree that he can compete with the best around. However, despite that, he still hasn't received any college scholarship offers.
"It is frustrating for him because he sees on Twitter all of the other guys getting offers," Dylan's father Tony Boone said.
Schools in the Ohio Valley Conference, along with Western Kentucky have shown some interest, but Dylan has tried not to look to much into it.
"All of the ESPN 150 stuff is silly," Boone said. "You rate the player on how he plays on Friday night. I don't pay much attention to rankings."
But for now, Boone is putting off talk about the future as long as he can. Instead, he is focusing on the biggest game of his high school career against DeSales this Friday night.
"I know what I can do as a football player," Boone said. "But right now I am worried about putting my skills and abilities together against DeSales."
Boone and the Tigers will host DeSales at 7pm this Friday night with a birth in the state championship on the line.
