Football star, drag racer...
and Lehigh Engineer

Billy Boyko ‘13 is a star both on and off the field. Boyko, a Lehigh Mountain Hawks’ starting inside linebacker and mechanical engineering major, leads the Mountain Hawks with 97 tackles in this year alone. Boyko’s unyielding mentality and work ethic has paid dividends since he began his career at Lehigh four years ago. He saw time on special teams as a freshman, appeared in all 13 games as a sophomore and made seven starts (11 games) in 2011 while winning a pair of Patriot League titles. Boyko overcame a concussion just in time to play in Lehigh’s 27-21 overtime win over Lafayette in 2009, and as a sophomore, he was thrust into the spotlight as a starter.
