“I’ve always tried to serve God’s purpose for my life, on and off the field, and I am prepared for what is to come. My wife Ann and our family have been life’s greatest blessing. I am at peace,” Bowden told the publication. He’s currently 91-years-old.

Obviously, this is an incredibly sad situation for Bobby Bowden, his family, his friends and the entire Florida State fanbase.

Bowden tested positive for coronavirus in 2020, and the Tallahassee Democrat reported that his health has only “deteriorated” since.

He now has supervised care and rests at his home, according to the same report.

All the way around, it’s just really sad. Bowden is a titan in the world of college football, and he’s now been diagnosed with a terminal illness.

You know that everyone eventually passes on, but it doesn’t make the situation any easier.

Are prayers are with Boweden and his family during this incredibly sad time.
