"This is the best of the best who have walked the halls at Granville High School," activities director Tim Dennison tells the Granville Sentinel.

The article notes that in high school, Bowers was center for a Blue Aces basketball team that was ranked #2 in the state, and was also the Mid-State League-Cardinal Division football "lineman of the year." The newspaper notes that Bowers later "starred at DePauw" where he won the "prestigious Coach's Award."

A sidebar also points out that Bowers -- an economics major DePauw Pennant sm gold.jpgat DePauw who went on to earn an M.B.A. from Vanderbilt University -- is now vice president of total rewards and entertainment for Harrah's Entertainment.
