After six weeks of the 2017 football season, Lynn Bowden has picked his first honor as a Kentucky Wildcat. 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. He returned three kicks for 79 yards — one 35-yarder had the chance to go the distance — and caught three passes for 49 yards. 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.
