ABOUT NAVORRO BOWMAN
NaVorro Bowman commonly referred to as the unsung hero of the San Francisco 49ers, has done what very few NFL athletes have done in their careers let alone within the first two years of playing. This third round draft pick has made the Pro Bowl and twice been named to the NFL All Pro team. In addition to these elite honors, he played an integral role in leading the 2012 San Francisco 49ers to an NFC Championship and to their first Super Bowl appearance since 1994. NaVorro has exceeded all expectations and has set the pace for what is sure to be an iconic career in the National Football League.
Bowman started sports at a young age and was a member of District Heights boys and girls club, where he played both basketball and football and was invited to many All-star Events. Bowman was a standout player at Suitland High School in Forestville, Maryland. He was named the Maryland Defensive Player-of-the-Year, first-team All-State, Washington Post first-team All-Met and first-team All-Conference. He was recruited to Penn State where he would play an integral role during his college career at Penn State, where he continues to contribute to the school and give back to the community whenever possible.
Now that NaVorro has developed a strong NFL foundation, he is sharing his focus with his philanthropic aspirations. NaVorro is adamant about giving back to him home town as well as the Penn State community. He is often involved in charity initiatives in San Francisco, D.C., Pennsylvania and even overseas. NaVorro spent several weeks in Africa this summer where he aided children and families in need. This life changing trip through Pros For Africa in partnership with the Starkey Hearing Foundation, has inspired NaVorro to do more. He plans to start his own foundation soon so that he too can lead the charge in helping others in need.
