22. Todd Boeckman, St. Henry, Football, Basketball and Baseball, 1999-2003: Some might be surprised at Boeckman’s rank here, but his resume speaks for itself. Boeckman earned 11 varsity letters at St. Henry and led the Redskins to a state final in every sport (and two state titles). As a freshman QB he guided St. Henry to a runner-up finish in D-V. That same school year the Redskins – with Boeckman as sixth man – were runner-up in boys basketball in D-IV. That spring the Redskins won the D-IV state baseball title. St. Henry also won the D-IV state baseball title in Boeckman’s senior year.

Individually, Boeckman’s name appears among the leaders in multiple state records and sports.

In football Boeckman ranks No. 15 in career passing yards (7,021 yards, 1999-2002) and No. 18 in career passing TDs (64, 1999-2002).

In baseball Boeckman is tied for No. 2 in Ohio history for most RBIs in a season (66 in 2003). Since his performance no one else has hit more than 56. He’s also tied for No. 3 for HRs in a season (18 in 2003), tied for No. 3 with HRs in five straight games (2003), tied for No. 4 in HRs for a career (40 from 2000-2003) and No. 12 for most RBIs in a career (140 (00-03). On the mound Boeckman is tied for No. 8 in most consecutive wins (19, 2001-03).

The 2003 St. Henry team (Boeckman’s senior year) ranks No. 3 all-time in Ohio for hits in a season (389).

In basketball Boeckman ended his career No. 9 on St. Henry’s career scoring list with over 1,000 points. He led the Redskins in scoring and rebounding his sophomore, junior and senior seasons.

Boeckman earned All-Ohio honors (a total of seven times) in all three sports.
