Oops, Mea Culpa: Eric Martin Another Boston Globe Hoop All-Scholastic Oversight

I shall eventually get this Boston Globe All-Scholastic history regards Danvers High’s unimaginable — but true — team and individual performances of the past four years straight — all Northeastern Conference- and state championship-winning seasons.

Once and for all, for the accurate record, I hope:

Dana Skinner was Danvers’ first Globe Hoop All-Scholastic in 1973.

The next Globe All-Scholastic was George Merry, leader of the 2012 Northeastern Conference and Division 3 MIAA state champions.

Eric Martin made it two Globe All Scholastics in two years in 2013, when the Falcons successfully defended their NEC and MIAA titles.

Lastly, as noted recently in this same space, in another admission of my being asleep at the switch, Devan Harris, a new member of the team after moving to town from Hingham, took this Globe All-Scholastic business to another level over the next two years. He was named a back-to-back Boston Globe selection in 2014 (when the Falcons, in a pleasant surprise) went 20-3, and 2015, when DHS made all kinds of local, regional and state history by going 27-0, winning a fourth straight NEC title and a third state title in four years, this in Division 2.
