After a long, thought-out recruitment process, Clinton’s Caleb Bowman has signed his letter of intent to continue his academic and athletic career at Henderson State University. Bowman chose Henderson State because, “I felt that they showed the most interest in me and belief in what I can do,” he said.
“Playing college football has been my dream since I started playing at five years old and I can’t put into words how it feels to have a dream come true,” Bowman said.
Bowman signed at Yellowjacket Arena among family, coaches, and friends.
His mom proudly said, “Caleb receiving a scholarship from Henderson State to play the game he loves means the world to us. Since he was a little boy he has played football. He loves the game, his teammates, and has worked hard to get to this point. We are so excited to witness our son’s dream coming true.”
Bowman was a huge contributor to Clinton’s historic three past seasons, amassing 31 wins and just 5 losses. Playing linebacker and fullback for the ‘Jackets, Bowman was able to account for 233 tackles and rush for 1131 yards on just 159 carries.
Henderson State intends to utilize Bowman as a defensive end. Bowman is most looking forward to proving himself to a new team and making his family and town proud as well as continue his football career.
“I am preparing myself to make the jump from high school to college by working out and trying to better myself while preparing for the different atmosphere of college football,” Bowman said
