After six weeks of the 2017 football season, Lynn Bowden has picked his first honor as a Kentucky Wildcat.Â The SEC named Bowden Freshman of the Week for his performance against Missouri.
After playing a reserve role to start the season, he played his best game yet filling in for the injured Charles Walker as UK’s primary slot receiver and returner. Â He returned three kicks for 79 yards — one 35-yarder had the chance to go the distance — and caught three passes for 49 yards. Â His ability to turn nothing into a 22-yard gain on UK’s final offensive possession was spectacular.

To use Mark Stoops’ words, Bowden is just getting started.
