Former Kentucky star Lynn Bowden Jr. plans charity event surrounding NFL Combine bench press
Kentucky QB/WR Lynn Bowden Jr. will be one of the most interesting prospects at the NFL Combine at the end of the month as NFL teams try to figure out what they want to do with him.
However, he’ll now be even more interesting at the Combine, as he’s organized a charity event around his bench press results.
As you can see below, he announced a partnership with Fathers Incorporated, donating for every rep he manages to put up:
Proud & humbled to announce that I'll be raising money for @fathersincorp at the #NFLCombine. Please
join me in working to build stronger families & communities through the
promotion of responsible fatherhood by making your pledge for every bench pressrep https://t.co/UtTUK4prTn pic.twitter.com/mYTuKDkdmA
