Lynn Bowden is Bench Pressing for Charity at the NFL Combine

Lynn Bowden is determined to make money at the NFL Combine by climbing up draft boards and accepting donations to charity.

The proving ground for NFL Draft prospects, Bowden’s speed, agility and strength will be put to the test at Lucas Oil Stadium. Typically it’s difficult to quantify exactly how much money one player can make with an exceptional workout. That’s not the case when Bowden hits the bench Wednesday, Feb. 26.

Bowden has teamed up with Fathers Incorporated, a nonprofit that builds strong families and communities by promoting the power of responsible fatherhood. The birth of his son changed Lynn’s life for the best. He hopes it can have that came affect on others.

I have learned how important being a father is, but I also know how hard it can be, especially if you don’t have an example to follow. That’s why, as I take the next step toward achieving my NFL dream, I have made an important decision to use my performance at the 2020 NFL Combine to support Fathers Incorporated. Fathers Incorporated is an amazing organization working to build stronger families and communities through the promotion of responsible fatherhood. For all of the sons, daughters, and fathers out there, please join me by making a pledge!

To help you can pledge a dollar amount for each bench press rep Bowden completes at the combine. Lifting 225 pounds, he estimates that he can finish 12 reps in Indianapolis. With a modest goal of $2,500, click here to support a cause that is close to Bowden’s heart.

He’s staying hydrated ahead of the NFL Combine with a Lexington-based, all natural hydration product. This week Bowden joined the Sword Performance team.

“I’ve been drinking Sword for a while now and am very excited to partner with this great Lexington-based brand,” says Bowden. “It’s a product I really love and I’m looking forward to having them on my team as I begin my NFL career.”

    I love that picture and his son’s “you people are crazy” face.
