"It means a lot to me to be apart of Chattanooga Football Club," said Bowers. "I can’t wait to be in front of the community and give back to the people that deserve so much."
"Being apart of the community is such an important aspect being a professional soccer player. I can’t wait to get into the community and help others!"
