“I have served in collegiate athletics for 17 years and I have never experienced a coach or program do more to develop the entire person than Coach Bowen,” stated ACU Transformational Coach Randy Chambers. “One of the taglines of the football team is “Changed Men Change the World,” and Coach Bowen creates an unwavering system to support it. Young men’s lives and futures are being transformed through Coach Bowen’s leadership.”
