ESPN Follows NaVorro Bowman’s Search for His Real Father

Even if you hate ESPN, you’ll enjoy E:60‘s story about NaVorro Bowman’s search for his real father.

The story is almost too bizarre to be believed: Bowman, a Penn State graduate and arguably the best linebacker in the NFL right now, grew up believing his father was a man named Hillard Bowman.

Before Bowman’s sophomore year, Hillard passed away due to a blood clot that developed after surgery to repair a broken ankle. After contemplating quitting football, Bowman returned to Penn State and went on to be one of the greatest linebackers to ever suit up for the Nittany Lions.

However, later that year, Bowman learned about his biological father, a man named Tracy Andrews.

Fast forward to this past summer, and ESPN decided to follow Bowman to North Carolina, where Bowman met the family he never knew and visits his father’s burial site. While there, Bowman learns of his biological father, his life, and his death.

This is one of the best things you will watch today.
