Shortly after graduating from Orleans High School, my brother Solomon Thoms and I became interested in seeing high school football games . We decided to look at other area high schools, due to our school not having a team.
Coach Bowsman invited us to the yearly Senator Nation cookout. We were accepted into Senator Nation with an unexpected amount of hospitality and generosity. Any time we wanted to see a football game, we knew we were welcomed at West Washington.
When reading about the kind of man Philip Bowsman was, it was an honor to say we knew him. Great Man. Great Coach. He will be greatly remembered!
