He won All-State honors in football and basketball, and in track & field, he qualified for the State Meet in both the long jump and the high jump.

In a game against the Tennessee Titans, Bouman completed 21 of 31 passes for 384 yards and four touchdowns and was named NFC Offensive Player of the Week.[3] In 2002, Bouman took over again for Culpepper with the Vikings trailing the New York Giants 27-20 but could not complete a potential tying touchdown drive.[4][5] After the game, Bouman expressed interest in becoming a starting quarterback.[6]
