Last night, Coach Bowen was rushed to a hospital with a likely heart attack. He was pronounced dead, in the early morning hours. Many of his team and leadership were with him during the final moments.
Chris spent several years training the boys, focusing primarily on lineman development. His team is consoling one another during this loss, and appreciates the prayers and support of all their football & community friends.
Chris was recently joined on the Charger coaching staff by his son, Brady Bowen. Brady was an influential player on the 2013 National Homeschool Championship team. As a recent graduate, Brady assumed an associate role with the Lighthouse coaching staff.
Chris is survived by his wife and 2 children, all of whom were deeply involved in the Lighthouse homeschool organization.
"I'd do just about anything to flip one more tire for one of the greatest and most influential coaches I have ever had. I will forever cherish the time I had with Coach Bowen, and I know all of my fellow high school teammates feel the same way. Coach Bowen was the epitome of a coach who would go the extra mile to ensure the well being emotionally, physically, and spiritually of a player. He was a great man, person, and role model. I'll never forget the conversations we had together. He will be missed by so many."
