Lynn Bowden was back in the Bluegrass for a good cause this weekend. The former Wildcat traveled to Somerset, Kentucky to help with a free football clinic for kids in the area on Saturday evening. First through sixth graders participated in the youth clinic, and they each had the chance to play alongside a UK legend – plus receive a free t-shirt, of course.
Here’s the poster promoting the free event:
Check out the video of Bowden completing the camp’s obstacle course here, posted on the Somerset Youth Football League’s Facebook page:
Herald Leader photographer Alex Slitz was on the scene and took some great pictures at the event. Those are available on the HL’s website, linked here.
If any other youth football clinics are looking to bring in a special guest, Kentucky’s top-rated recruit (and a huge UK target for the 2021 class) Jager Burton may be available. He says he is looking to give back for the kids in the Lexington area:
Anyone in the lex area that has a youth team that I could speak to or help with dm me I'm extremely interested in giving back and helping as many people as possible.
