Bowden back in town

More than 13 years after coaching his last game in the county, former Clemson head football coach Tommy Bowden returned to his former church, Rock Springs Baptist Church in Easley, to serve as guest speaker at its 25th annual “Critter Cook” event on March 5. Bowden’s topic was biblical leadership. Bowden coached the Tigers for 10 years, compiling a 72-45 record, and returned to Memorial Stadium for a game for the first time since his 2008 resignation when Clemson honored his father, late Florida State coach Bobby Bowden, last fall.
