Former Notre Dame Grad Bowman Joins Staff At Knoxville Catholic

A Member Of The CFL's All-Decade Team, Bowman Was Recipient Of League's 2017 Pate Memorial Award

Tuesday, January 11, 2022
Adarius Bowman has joined Knoxville Catholic as the Associate Director of Admission Outreach and International Enrollment. Bowman is a 2003 graduate of Notre Dame High School in Chattanooga and a 2007 graduate of Oklahoma State University.

Bowman recently completed a stellar 11-year career in the CFL (Canadian Football League), and he was recently honored as a member of the CFL’s All-Decade Team (2010-2020) as a wide receiver.
He led the CFL in receiving yards three seasons and helped lead the Edmonton Eskimos to a Grey Cup Championship in 2015.

Despite Bowman’s achievements on the field during his CFL career, he noted, “the accomplishment I am most proud of is winning the 2017 Tom Pate Memorial Award.” This award is presented to the CFL player with outstanding sportsmanship who has made a positive and significant contribution to the community. Bowman founded the non-profit “Adarius 4 Autism,” which creates awareness and establishes programs to help children with autism.

In addition to his student development and outreach duties, Bowman will assist Fighting Irish football as a wide receivers coach.
