VAUGHT: Boone leads NFL Europe
He's playing for the Berlin Thunder and in last week's victory over Frankfurt, he had eight catches for 109 yards and one touchdown. On a fourth-quarter scoring drive, he had five catches for 58 yards, including two third-down conversion receptions.
He already has 40 catches for 553 yards this season. Those numbers far surpass the 13 catches for 221 yards and four touchdowns he had in the same league in 2004.
Perhaps he should thank Dave Ragone, the former Louisville quarterback, for getting the ball to him. Or maybe it just took Berlin's coaches a little time to figure out that good things happen when the ball goes Boone's directions. After all, he had the same problem at Kentucky early in his career before becoming one of the SEC's best clutch receivers.
Boone's team will play on FOX-TV Saturday. He's had a camera out all week to document his life in Germany and highlights will be shown during halftime of the game. The game is scheduled to air on a delayed basis at 1 p.m. EST.
And if you want to know a lot more about Boone, then go to aaronboone.com. He keeps a journal that is full of information.
What Boone won't do is brag on himself. However, don't be surprised if he secures a roster spot with the Carolina Panthers when he returns to the United States. He's been close to making NFL rosters the last two years only to have preseason injuries ruin his chances. Now his banner season in Germany, along with the special teams skills he knows he must possess to make a NFL roster, could have him positioned to finally get his chance to play in the NFL.
