Travis Bowen an athletic Lineman out of Massachusetts
It may be a long time on the calendar until the class of 2028 prospects will begin making their college decisions, but some are already gearing up to take their game to the next level.
Travis Bowen, an offensive lineman out of Marlboro, Massachusetts, is one such athlete.
The 5-foot-9, 225 pound prospect spent much of his summer at college camps and all-star games.
A member of Massachusetts’ FBU team, Bowen attended FBU camp at Bentley University. He also went to the Max Lane Lineman Camp at UMass-Lowell and the Worcester Football Academy Camp.
His performances there and on the field in the past earned him spots on the CM Select All-Star Team at the Diamond Summer Shine game in North Carolina and the Beantown Classic All-Star tournament in Boston
“It has helped me develop my skills as a football player going against tough competition,” Bowen said. “I like going against players that put my skills to the test.”
“I have made some great connections with kids and coaches from across Massachusetts and different states.”
Bowen also plays lacrosse and basketball in addition to football.
He says that has helped his game in a variety of ways as a student athlete.
“I think it helps me as a student athlete knowing I have to keep my grades up to be able to play, especially when I am playing more than one sport,” Bowen said. “It’s important to have good time management and being able to balance that in between sports and is a good life skill.”
In addition to learning time management and the importance of academics, Bowen has reaped physical benefits too.
“I found that I am in better shape and more competitive,” Bowen said. “To be my best at basketball and lax I have to train hard, nobody excepts the big guy on the field and court to be fast and aggressive.”
As he looks forward to playing high school football in the next two years, Bowen will take some lessons learned with him as he tries to achieve his goals.
Bowen says he wants to “maintain good grades and train hard to become a better lineman and athlete to hopefully get into a private school with a good football program.”
With a ton of upside and the attitude Bowen possesses, he could be one to continue tracking in the northeast.
