Sen. Scott and Rep. Dunn propose Congressional Gold Medal for Bobby Bowden

The push to award posthumously a Congressional Gold Medal to Bobby Bowden has gained Senate support as his former team vaults to a Top-3 rating within the polls and their fans wake the echoes of the winning tradition Bowden established at Florida State University.

Congressman Neal Dunn, R-Panama City, and Sen. Rick Scott, each up for reelection in 2024, have introduced laws to honor Bowden with a distinction Congress created to acknowledge individuals for achievements that make an enduring contribution to the history and culture of the USA.

Bowden coached FSU from 1976 – 2009, winning 316 games and two national championships on the sphere while he distinguished himself in activities off the sphere that features a 2004 leadership award from the Children’s Hunger Fund.

“While Coach Bobby Bowden was a legend on the football field, it’s the generations of scholars, athletes, and countless others he led and served off the sphere that can perpetually define his greatness as a rare leader, Floridian, and American,” said Scott.

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Florida, is a co-sponsor of Senate Bill 2762. It comes on the heels of House Resolution Bill 5363 Dunn introduced on September 8 and is cosponsored by representatives Byron Donalds, R-Naples; Michael Waltz, R-St. Augustine; Daniel Webster, R-Clermont; Gus Bilirakis, R-Palm Harbor; Vern Buchanan, R-Sarasota; Bill Posey, R-Rockledge; and Maria Elvira Salazar, R-Miami.
