Trevone Boykin has always had to prove his worth at the quarterback position. Even after two historic seasons at TCU, Boykin couldn’t even get drafted, getting signed as a free agent by the Seahawks. Well, the rookie had a hell of an NFL debut, as he helped the Seahawks win their game on a last-second toss to Tanner McEvoy, followed by a successful two-point conversion for the 17-16 win over the Chiefs.

Boykin engineered a last-minute 88-yard drive to help seal the win for Seattle. He finished 16 of 26 for 188 yards. Here are his postgame comments:

OK, so Boykin isn’t going to take over for Russell Wilson anytime soon. But, hopefully he’s turned enough heads to keep on in Seattle or land somewhere else after the preseason.
