Boatman All-Metro Honorable MentionBy: Jim Linsdau, Sports Editor
As a follow up to The News Messenger’s Jan. 11 story as to Lincoln High football players being named to the Sacramento Bee’s 2017 All Metro team, linebacker Jack Boatman should have been included along with James Sweet and Tommy Turner.
Boatman received defense honorable mention after leading the Fighting Zebras with 144 tackles during the 2017 campaign. He missed Charles Middleton’s potential school record by just 20 tackles.
Boatman also had two interceptions, two fumble recoveries and caused five other fumbles, last year.
