Coyotes Snag NFL Prospect Shaine Boyle


(NEW ORLEANS) — NFL prospect and former Faulkner University cornerback Shaine Boyle – once rated by Scout.com as ‘one of the best top cover-corners in all of Southern California’ has agreed to terms with the desert champion SoCal Coyotes and will report to the team this week.

The Coyotes are finalizing their 53-man roster and stockpiling depth on both sides of the ball. The addition of Boyle in an already richly talented secondary offers more evidence that the team has become a trusted feeder program for the NFL, CFL and Arena Football League. Two Arena teams already inquired as to when Boyle would arrive.

The 5-11, 190-pound Boyle impressed pro coaches and scouts with blinding 4.3 speed during tryouts and was recommended to the Coyotes and told to keep working until his NFL phone call comes.
For Boyle, football hasn’t always been an easy road.

He graduated from (La.) Hahnville High School in 2007 and attended a junior college in Texas but only as a student. He attended a junior college in Mississippi in 2008 where he was supposed to play football but didn’t. He dropped out later that year when his girlfriend died of cancer.

He was out of football until 2010, when he enjoyed a stellar season at College of the Desert. He was given a scholarship to Indiana, but the NCAA ruled that his eligibility had expired. He played his senior year at Faulkner, where he dominated in the toughest NAIA conference in the nation.

“One look at his NFL workout film is about all anybody needs to see,” says Coyote head coach J. David Miller. “Speed kills, and Shaine is no exception. He’s a strong guy who can lock down smaller receivers. He’s physical, doesn’t lose anything when he opens up in transition, and takes great angles to the ball. He’ll be one less reason to throw the ball into our secondary.”

Boyle also returns kick, plays safety and can work in the slot offensively. “Shaine is just a great talent, and has an even greater attitude and will to win,” Miller said.

Returning to the desert for his second time, Boyle has his eyes set on a championship with the SoCal Coyotes sports leadership organization, where he will ‘Defend the Shield’ of faith, family and football.

It’s been said that when a man speaks, he reveals the condition of his heart – and as Boyle prepared to leave New Orleans for Palm Springs, he aptly wrote this on his personal Facebook page:

“I will love thee, O Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.”
