Tom Boehme SHS HOF Coach 2022.jpg

Coach Tom Boehme took over a grid program that was in dire straits following season-after-season of losing records, apathy, and declining interest in high school football during the 1980s. His efforts produced a top-echelon program that, in 1996, took third in the state after a “magical” run through the playoffs.

After a three-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Stanwood High School Athletic Hall of Fame returns this fall to induct its eighth group of honorees in an October ceremony.

Among them are six individual athletes, a contributor, a coach, two teams and a special nominee .
