Join us at the Billy Graham Library on March 14, 2015 as we welcome Bobby Bowden – former Florida State University football coach.
Coach Bowden attended several Billy Graham Crusades, including the 1985 Ft. Lauderdale Crusade and 1986 Tallahassee Crusade, during both of which he spoke from the platform.
At the March 14 event, Bowden will sign copies of his books, including his most recent effort, The Wisdom of Faith.
One of the NCAA’s winningest coaches, he guided Florida State University to more than 300 victories, two national championships and 12 Atlantic Coast Conference titles—finishing in the top five in the country in 14 straight seasons. He also led the Seminoles to Bowl Games in 28 consecutive seasons during his 34-year tenure. Bowden was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2006.
The patriarch of college football’s most famous coaching family, Coach Bowden remains heavily involved in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, annually awarding The National Bobby Bowden Award to a student athlete for achievement on and off the field, including conduct as a faith model in the community.
Books will be available for purchase in Ruth’s Attic bookstore, or you may bring your own. Limit of two signed items per person. (One item must be a book by Coach Bowden.) For more information, please call 704-401-3256 or email LibraryEvents@bgea.org.
