High school baseball: Glenwood SS Bowers signs with Southern Union

Carson Bowers

“It feels good, like a weight was lifted off my shoulders,” Bowers said. “Knowing I’ve got somewhere to go and compete next year is a great feeling.”

Bowers, who bats fourth in the Gators’ lineup, is batting .536 this season with 18 runs and 15 RBIs as he aims to help Glenwood, now 13-0, win its third consecutive Alabama Independent School Association state championship.

“We started working the day football was over,” Bowers said. “We got out there and worked hard and started working out, and the coaches drive it into our heads that if we play the game right, everything will just work itself out.”

Bowers said he also considered Montevallo and Enterprise State Community College, where his older brother and former Glenwood player Brett Bowers plays.
