Legendary FSU Coach Bobby Bowden visited Fayetteville, North Carolina and spoke the fundraising event for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes on March 24 at the Snyder Memorial Baptist Church. He spoke to a crowd of about 275 guests during the dinner portion of the event about his career coaching football for nearly 50 years and shared his opinion on some of the changes made to the NCAA football program. The 85 year old also talked about how he thinks the sport is the best it has ever been on the field, despite the disruptions and incidents that happens to the players off the field.
Bowden started coaching in in 1954 and worked for a few schools like Howard and West Virginia, but he is most remembered and associated with Florida State University since she spent most of his career with them. He was the winner of the 1980 Bobby Dodd COY Award, 1991 Walter Camp Coach of the Year Award, and the Amos Alonzo Stagg Award of 2011, and has taken his team to the National Championships twice in the years 1993 and 1999. In addition to that, Bowden had an award named after him called the “Bobby Bowden National Collegiate Coach of the Year Award” which was initiated in 2010, the year that he retired.
Bowden gave a fantastic talk to his fans who attended the fundraiser and shared his passion for the game and being a coach to players for so many years. He is still very much into football and continues to pay attention to the games each season.
