Professional Football Player. He was a 1954 All-America end at Oklahoma and one of the Muskogee, Oklahoma, gang that helped the Sooners to record-setting seasons under Bud Wilkinson. Boydston played on two state championship teams at Muskogee Central High School. During Boydston's Sooner days under Wilkinson, OU began a 47-game winning streak, an NCAA record that still stands. He was voted the nation's outstanding lineman by the Washington Touchdown Club in 1954. He was a first-round draft pick by the Chicago Cardinals in 1955. He played tight end with the Cardinals from 1955 thru 1958. He went on to play pro football for the Dallas Texans (1960-61) and Oakland Raiders (1962). He played for the Hamilton Tigercats in the Canadian Football League in 1959. After the end of his playing career, he taught and coached for 27 years in Texas, mostly in Sherman. He retired in 1991 and returned to Muskogee, Oklahoma, in 1993. (bio by: Mel Bashore)
