The 90-year-old legendary Florida State Football Head Coach credits prayers for his full recovery after being infected by COVID-19.
Head Coach Bobby Bowden
Amidst the ongoing pandemic the world is facing today, a lot of people were not able to avoid the havoc it caused in their lives. And former Florida State Football Head Coach Robert Cleckler Bowden or ‘Bobby Bowden’ can attest to that. But due to prayer, he said, he overcame the challenge.
Robert was Florida State Seminoles football team’s head coach way back 1976 until 2009. According to Faithpot, he won 357 games under his belt “which makes him one of the greatest college football coaches of all time.” More so, he has received multiple awards for his brilliant coaching.
Recently, the now 90-year-old former coach became a victim of COVID-19. Although it was a tough battle for him, thankfully, God intervened and he has fully recovered from the disease. And he credits God and everyone’s prayers for it.
“I want to thank all the many, many people who were thinking of and praying for me over the last few weeks,” Bobby said in a statement. “I just went through a battle with COVID-19 and God just wasn’t ready to take me home yet to be with him.”
Also, he is grateful for the excellent treatment he received from the hospital. He said, “I had the opportunity to be treated for COVID-19 with drugs to include Remdesivir. At the age of 91, in many other countries, I might not have been treated.”
His Christian Faith
Bobby also shared that his relationship with God and his family are a priority in his life. For the former Florida State head coach, imparting his faith to his children is very important.
“I have always said that the only thing you can take to heaven with you is your kids, and for 71 years of marriage, Ann and I have tried to live our lives and share our Christian faith with them. So that one day, we will all be there together.”
