November 22, 1995
Jay Boatman, the Cobbers' 6' 3" 245 lb. senior offensive guard, was named to the All-MIAC second team following a season in which the Cobbers literally ran their way to a share of the conference title. They advanced to the Division III playoffs for the first time in seven years and finished with an overall record of 8-2-1 overall, 7-1-1 in the conference.
Boatman, a starter for more than two years, has the rare blend of speed and quickness that is not found in many offensive linemen. "He has enough speed to pull out on sweeps and enough size to pass protect," said Cobber head coach Jim Christopherson.
Boatman is a 1992 graduate of Lake Park/Audubon high school and is the son of Roger and Phyllis Boatman of Lake Park, Minn. He is majoring in health care administration with a minor in communications.
The Cobbers' big offensive line formed large holes in opposing defenses as Concordia won the rushing title averaging 266 yards per game and a total of 2,692 yards for the year. The team in second place was had fifty less yards per game.
