Notable: Eric will play a combination of running back and slot receiver at Tusculum after helping the Trojans win a share of the Two Rivers 3A Conference title this season. … He also sprints and jumps for the track team. … “I really want to improve on my footwork,” Bowles said. “I’ve played for great coaches here who get us turned in the right direction.”
South coach Hunter Jenks: “Eric kind of came on as a senior. Physically he’s still maturing, so I think his better days are ahead of him. If he sticks with it he can have a really successful career.”
