Boyack comes to the United States after a successful stint playing for coach Brett Adams on the Notts County Academy youth squad in England. At Missouri State, Boyack figures to be a contributor at either forward or the wide midfield position. Following his 2011-12 season, he took home two of the top youth accolades presented at the Notts County Academy Awards Banquet, including the Golden Boot and Goal of the Year honors for a spectacular goal against Rotherham United.
Associate Head Coach Michael Seabolt on Boyack:
"Jon should be another very good addition to the 2012 class and we are very pleased that he has decided to come on board. Jon has good experience as an attacking player and a good goal scoring record. He is a technical player and a good finisher. We feel he can compete to make an immediate impact and help us build a team with a very strong attacking threat. We also have been very impressed with his commitment to his education and his future in sport as well."
