The Osceola staff asked Florida State players and fans for their favorite memories of coach Bobby Bowden, and the stories offer a viewpoint of who he was and what he meant to them. During the Osceola’s Happy Hour on Aug. 12, we recorded various thoughts and they have been compiled as a podcast at the link below.
Among the players who told stories were Henry Ostaszewski, Joe Ostaszewski and Danny McManus. Fans who told stories include Karen Ellis, Jason Franza, Bo Bohacs, Terry Vaughn, Gene Gainer and Chris Holder. FSU swimming coach Bill Shults also shared memories. Daniel Mitchell and Dan Densmore, who were both Osceola employees, also shared anecdotes of covering Bowden. Special thanks to Vera Kutz for editing the anecdotes and narrating the episode.
