    After graduating from Humble High School in Humble, Texas, Boston became a three-year starter for the Ohio State Buckeyes (1996–98). His 191 pass receptions as a Buckeye is the second most in school history (Hill, 2019). His 2,855 receiving yards were a school record until surpassed by Michael Jenkins in 2003. With 36 career touchdown receptions (and one two-point conversion), Boston averaged 5.89 points per game.

    Boston's best-remembered moment remains his game-winning five-yard touchdown reception from quarterback Joe Germaine with 19 seconds remaining in the 1997 Rose Bowl.

    I hope he can clean himself up, and get his life straight than and only then, keep back to football.

    I really doubt he will have another oppurtunity. Espically is he had the drug illegally. No wonder he was so adament he was not drinking.

    It really is sad. I hate seeing that happen to people and especially alum of tosu! I hope he has some folks around him that will help him get and stay clean, and if not the strength to get rid of that group and find a group that will.

    This depends.... didn't read the article, but if this is battery of a dude who was asking for it, then that's one thing. If he was beating on his misses, that's another thing entirely.
