Richard Bowers is known as “Dean Bowers” to those younger people who remember him as a Dean in the school. The older people remember him as Coach Bowers. I knew him as neither a coach or Dean; I call him “Coach” out of respect for what he has done as a coach and for the many people who say he has been such a big influence on them. They have grown up to be responsible and productive citizens who often claim to owe their success to Coach Bowers.
We met at Beef O’ Brady’s for lunch and conversation. The nice thing about talking with Coach is that if you ask him just one question, the answer goes into different directions and by the time he is through he has answered questions that I didn’t even think about. Also while he was talking it was easier to eat most of the wings that we ordered!
