Boswell signed with Iowa to play defensive back or running back. Boswell is the first player since Deon'Tae Pannill '08 (Penn State) at Groves to sign with a Big Ten school and the first to sign with Iowa. Boswell will go down as one the best running backs to ever play at Groves. Below is a list of where he stands in the records books:

Saamad Ali '16 - Siena Heights
Ali is one of the most versatile players Groves has had in recent years. With his size and strength he was able to play several different defensive positions and help lead Groves to 6 shutouts in 2015. He is listed as a strong safety but also played outside linebacker and would play on the defensive line. Ali recorded 152 tackles in his career including 77 first hits. He also was in on 2 interceptions, 3 fumble recoveries, and 2 sacks.
