#MizzouMade: Evan Boehm

junior center Evan Boehm, being #MizzouMade is about tradition and family.

“To me, being Mizzou Made means traditions. Whether it be Homecoming, home games, the gold out, the black out. Strapping up in that Missouri uniform every Saturday and going out there and giving your best for the fans,” Boehm said.

These traditions are things that every Mizzou fan, athlete, student, or alum has come to learn and cherish. Mizzou prides itself on never forgetting these traditions and Mizzou Football only reinforces these traditions with its players.

Boehm was a standout in high school, ranked by ESPN as the No. 2 guard in the country and the No. 42 prospect among all players. He started all 14 games at center in 2013, and this season he is ranked among the top centers not just in the SEC, but in the nation.

He is an undisputed leader on and off the field for his Mizzou Football Family. The family atmosphere that Head Coach Gary Pinkel instills year after year in his program is why Boehm says Mizzou is special.

“The family atmosphere that we have is one that you cannot get anywhere else,” Boehm said.
