Jacob Bowen was frustrated by his team’s less than stellar performance in the first half.
After two quarters of play, the Bowling Green High School Bobcats trailed the Montgomery County Wildcats by a score of 28-8. What made the score even worse was that Montgomery was winless in its 2018 campaign.
Bowen knew that something needed to be said during the halftime break.
He just hoped that someone would say something.
After Bowling Green High School Head Coach Kevin Krietemeyer shared his thoughts with the team and left the locker room, starting quarterback Austin Callahan turned to Bowen and told him it was his turn to talk.
After the game, few — including Bowen himself — could remember what exactly the Bowling Green High School sophomore defensive and offensive lineman said to his fellow teammates.
“I basically just told my teammates that it was very clear to me that we were the better team and that we could handle this team,” Bowen said in an interview following the game. “We just needed to do our jobs because most of their touchdowns were happening because one person was messing up or not doing their job.”
Did Bowen get his point across?
