I played for Coach Boggs for two years...i was new to the state of Washington at the time, I was a troubled youth, and I was lost, he helped give me direction in my troubled life....i remember when he first told me I was playing varsity my junior year, it was one of the happiest...
Family works in Longview....and they don't want to move to Clark County! He is getting plenty of attention now, and it will just increase next season.
He also carries a 3.85 GPA - and the academics are taking notice too...stay tuned....
Did someone really say Heritage would be fifth in the standings?? Even behind Battlegroung who just got lucky they stayed in the game last year. Heritage has young talent returning. The fastest kid in the district is on their team and the QB is a hard worker don't count them out so much....
