“Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some people leave footprints on our hearts and minds. Life is a very fragile thing. We must live our lives to the fullest,” said Winn, who said Bowden is a man all about faith, respect, sincerity, charisma, strength, and humor. “His list of accomplishments is remarkable. In 1994 he was named one of the most creative coaches of all time,” he said about the man who is in the College Hall of Fame.

“What I really learned about Coach Bowden is that he has a true heart,” said Sheriff Morris Young. “These have been legendary stories from a legendary coach.” The sheriff went on to present Bowden with a personal gift of a gun and badge, making him an honorary sheriff. “There’s a new sheriff in Gadsden County!” said Young.
