Boston Shows Athleticism

One of the top athletes in Southwest Florida is Jayestin Boston from North Fort Myers. In 2008, the versatile star had 43 catches for 736 yards and chipped in four interceptions on defense.

Jayestin Boston who likes to be called 'Tre' recently competed in the Under Armour combine at the Dolphin Training Complex. He produced some great athletic numbers including a 9'8 broad jump and 4.16 shuttle. Boston who checked in at over 5'11 and 160 pounds responded, "I just finished with basketball season, so I am down 5-7 pounds from football season, I am starting track now and will get in the weight room. I am looking forward to Spring football.

Boston led the basketball team in scoring playing all over the court. He was also Lee County's leading receiver as a junior, but he might spend his senior year playing QB, "I played some QB at the end of the year, I will play where ever Coach G asks me to, whatever helps the team. I know I will be playing in the secondary, probably safety."

On the recruiting trail, one new team who shown interest in Boston is Indiana, "They are sending me hand written letters and want me to get up there to check out the campus. I have family in Michigan, so I know a little about the Midwest."

Other schools who have shown interest are Wake Forest, Boston College, USF, UCF, Maryland, and West Virginia. "Tommy(Bohanon) is already up at Wake Forest, he loves it, so I know all about them. USF and UCF are in-state schools, I am going up for UCF's junior day next weekend, I am looking forward to that."

A few schools who have started to get in contact with Boston are Michigan, Ohio State, and LSU.

What is it that Boston is looking for in a college, "To tell you the truth, I don't know all that much about any school, I have not seen a lot of campuses. I love playing football, and to have the opportunity to play at the next level is exciting. I just want to find a school where I fit in with the team. All of these schools have a lot to offer both academically and athletically."
