When standout Largo LB Sean Holte went down with a season-ending injury earlier this fall, the Packers needed other players to step up.

Jamarious Boatwright was one of them who did.

A 5-foot-9, 167-pound senior DB, Boatwright has a half dozen interceptions in 2009, two of which were returned for six.

“He makes big plays when it’s needed,” Largo coach Rick Rodriguez said.

Recently, a few colleges have started to notice.

Florida International, which is making a significant push in Tampa Bay, is one of them. Bowling Green, which stopped by Largo last week and requested clips of Boatwright, is another.

“He’s starting to get interest,” Rodriguez said. “He doesn’t have any offers yet, but he will sign Division I somewhere. He’s really coming on and playing big this year.”

Boatwright is a two-year starter. Even better, he’s an excellent student.
