Former NFL player David Rowe returned to his old stomping grounds at Deptford Township High School in Deptford, New Jersey over the first weekend in November. Rowe was among about 2,000 other former NFL players to go back to their high schools to present the establishments with an NFL Wilson Golden Football in order to help celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Super Bowl this coming February. On Thursday the 4th he was the speaker for the annual senior’s banquet, and on the 5th he attended a 2:30 p.m. luncheon that led up to the school’s Friday night football game. Rowe then spoke just prior to the kickoff of the Deptford vs. Woodstown football game and there was quite a crowd who came to see the former player.
The Neptune City, New Jersey Native graduated from Deptford Township High School in 1963 and earned himself an athletic scholarship to attend Penn State University. He entered the 1967 NFL Draft and was selected in the second round by the New Orleans Saints with whom he played with for three seasons before going to New England to join the Patriots for two seasons. Over the course of his career, Rowe also spent time with a couple other NFL franchises such as the San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders before retiring in 1978 from the sport. Currently, Rowe works as a college football analyst for ESPN.
Rowe returned home to his high school earlier this month to visit where he got his football career started and visit with today’s athletes, students, and fans. It was a very successful event and it should be a fun Super Bowl this year as it will be the competition’s 50th anniversary.
