October 13, 2014

Zack Bowman FootballThe New York Giants didn’t do much well in last night’s 27-0 loss to Philadelphia, but the loss wasn’t a complete waste for Anchorage’s Zack Bowman.

The seventh-year cornerback picked off Nick Foles in the second half, moving closer to Reggie Tongue’s Alaska record for interceptions in the NFL.

Bowman, of Bartlett High fame, now has 11 picks in 79 games.

In 2009, Bowman had an Alaska single-season record six interceptions with the Chicago Bears.

Tongue, of Fairbanks, had 17 picks from 1996 to 2005 (15 in the regular season and two in the playoffs).
