Draft Scout Anthony Boone News
12/31/13 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: QB Anthony Boone was erratic in the ACC championship game, completing 20-of-40 passes, and those numbers were bolstered by a late-game drive well after the outcome had been determined. Boone is coming off the only loss in his 11 career starts for the Blue Devils. He's mobile enough to stay away from some pass rushes, but Duke will look for ways where he can be more effective in locating open receivers. - The Sports Xchange
12/02/13 - WEEK 14 ACC CO-OFFENSIVE BACK OF THE WEEK: Anthony Boone, Duke, Jr.-R, QB, 6-0, 230, Weddington, N.C.,...Boone completed 23-of-34 passes (.677) for 274 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the 20th-ranked Blue Devilsí 27-25 Coastal Division-clinching win over North Carolina. Boone engineered Dukeís game-winning drive in the fourth quarter - an 11-play, 66-yard march that resulted in Ross Martinís 27-yard field goal with 2:22 left.
On the afternoon, Boone directed a Duke offense that committed no turnovers and allowed no sacks while rolling up 27 first downs and 461 total yards (187 rushing and 274 passing). Duke entered the week converting an ACC-low 25.3 percent on third down, but Boone led the Blue Devils to an 8-of-15 conversion rate (.533) versus UNC. - ACC football
11/29/13 - Another school record belongs to this Duke team -- and at least part of a division title does, too. The 25th-ranked Blue Devils want it all to themselves. Anthony Boone threw three touchdown passes and Duke claimed a share of the ACC's Coastal Division title by beating Wake Forest 28-21 for its school-record-tying ninth victory. Win once more -- against hated rival North Carolina, no less -- and they won't have to share the title. If the Blue Devils (9-2, 5-2) beat the Tar Heels next week, they'll play No. 2 Florida State in the league title game in Charlotte with a BCS berth on the line. - AP Sports
11/23/13 - Anthony Boone threw three touchdown passes and No. 25 Duke held on to beat Wake Forest 28-21 on Saturday for its seventh straight win. Brandon Connette rushed 3 yards for the go-ahead score late in the third quarter and Boone was 24 of 29 for 256 yards. The Blue Devils (9-2, 5-2 ACC) fell behind 14-0 before rallying to match the school record for victories and remain in control of the Coastal Division.
Boone threw touchdown passes covering 58 and 10 yards to Jamison Crowder and 4 yards to Max McCaffrey. Thomas Brown returned a fumble 59 yards for a touchdown for Wake Forest (4-7, 2-6). Tanner Price was 12 of 27 for 124 yards in his final home game with a 6-yard touchdown to Spencer Bishop and an 11-yard touchdown run. But he was intercepted by Ross Cockrell with 2:30 left. - AP Sports
10/19/13 - Anthony Boone threw two touchdown passes and Brandon Connette ran for one touchdown and threw for another Saturday as Duke rebounded from a 22-0 deficit and stunned reeling Virginia 35-22 Saturday. The Blue Devils (5-2, 1-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) converted four fourth-down plays in the second half to come all the way back, and their defense held the Cavaliers to five straight three-and-outs. The loss was the fourth in a row for Virginia (2-5, 0-3), which gained just 7 yards in the third quarter.
Connette, who came in at quarterback and twice gained a yard on fourth down to keep Blue Devils drives alive, faked a handoff on another fourth down and flipped a short pass to Braxton Deaver, who took it 47 yards for the winning TD. Three plays earlier, Anthony Harris dropped an interception for Virginia. Deaver later caught a 24-yard scoring pass from Boone to seal it. - AP Sports
