TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Former Florida State and NFL football
star Peter Boulware, who lost in a a razor-close contest for the
state House of Representatives last month, is the newest member of
the State Board of Education.
Gov. Charlie Crist named the 33-year-old Boulware of Tallahassee
to the seven-member panel Monday.
He succeeds longtime Tallahassee middle school principal Donna Callaway, who resigned in June.
Boulware, a Republican, was defeated by a scant 440 votes in his
first bid for political office by Democrat Michelle Rehwinkel Vasilinda in a heavily Democratic district.
Now a car dealership executive, Boulware graduated from Florida
State in 1997 and played for nine years in the NFL as a linebacker for the Baltimore Ravens.
