Lynn Bowden is the SEC Freshman of the Week


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.

    Yes Bowden is just getting started but give him the ball more especially when throwing out of the wildcat formation!

    Bowden is getting started and hopefully this means more opportunities to have the ball in his hands and also throw few passes especially out of the wildcat formation!

    The most underrated thing about this play was our Johnson getting a block in. That got Bowden 5+ more yard, and secured the first down.

      Yes! That was an excellent block by SJ. I think the reason people forget about it, though, was the fantastic scrambling and stiff arm that happened right after that,

    We need more of him and more CJ. Them along with Benny and Juice, our offense could really be something to watch.

    He runs a lot like that Lamar kid at that repugnant school up the road.

      Lamar Jackson is Superman…

      Bowden’s not there – yet…

    He is a stud, I don’t know if I would take him off the field, ever.

      I agree

      Copy that!

    3. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      Exactly. Defenses would always have to account for him, which would open it up for others when he’s a decoy. I remember when the Steelers used Randle El in trick plays a lot. This can be a lot like that.

    He has played better every week, has proven he can take care of the football, earning the trust from the coaching staff as evident from getting more touches every game. Look for him to kick that door down and break loose. Go big blue
