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.
