Chuck Bowman Locker Room Campaign Honoring Norse Legend, Coach Chuck Bowman, with improvements and upgrades in the NEO Football Crossland Complex

In order to accomplish our athletic goals on behalf of Northeastern Oklahoma A&M Football, it is crucial we provide first-class facilities to provide a first-class experience for current and future student athletes. Northeastern Oklahoma A&M Football and the proud alumni and boosters of the NEO Football program propose the continuation of a capital campaign to further enhance our football facilities by funding new lockers and carpet in the locker room of the Crossland Center.

Honoring a Legacy

In 1967, Chuck Bowman arrived in Miami to serve NEO as Head Football Coach and Athletic Director. In his first year as Norse Head Coach, his team won the NJCAA National Championship with a 9-1 record. Under Coach Bowman’s direction, the Golden Norse of 1969 won yet another NJCAA National Championship. Coach Bowman garnered national recognition by being twice-named NJCAA Coach of the Year in 1967 and again in 1969. He coached nine all-Americans and won three bowl game victories in just five years. Coach Bowman’s overall record at NEO was 41 wins and only eight losses. Additionally, Coach Bowman served as president of the National Football Coaches Association and served as the very first State Director of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes for more than 30 years. For these reasons and more, we propose naming the locker room the “Coach Chuck Bowman Legacy Locker Room” upon the financial completion of the campaign.
