Alan Bowman is an American football quarterback for the Texas Tech Red Raiders.

High school career[edit]

Bowman attended Grapevine High School in Grapevine, Texas. As a junior, Bowman was elected the District 8-5A Overall MVP in 2016.[1] In his senior year, Bowman threw for 3,570 yards and 38 touchdowns. He was rated as a three star recruit by both 247Sports.com and Rivals.com.[1][2] Bowman committed to Texas Tech on June 15, 2017 over schools such as Ole Miss, Arkansas, Missouri and Houston.[3][4]

College career[edit]

Bowman entered his freshman year at Texas Tech in 2018 in a three-way battle for the starting position over junior McLane Carter and sophomore Jett Duffey, with Carter being named the starter for the week 1 game against Ole Miss.[5] Bowman entered the game in the 2nd quarter after Carter suffered a high ankle sprain. Bowman went 29/49 for 273 yards with a touchdown in the 27–47 loss.[6] Bowman was named the starter for the week 2 match-up against Lamar, completing 22-of-25 passes for 282 yards with 2 touchdowns, only playing the first half of the game.[7] A week later on September 15, Bowman had a historic game against Houston, completing 43-of-59 passes for 605 yards with five touchdowns in the 63–49 win. Bowman's 605 yards set a Big 12 record for most passing yards in a game by a freshman.[8] On September 29 against West Virginia, Bowman left the game right before halftime after being sandwiched between two defenders with an apparent upper-body injury; it was later revealed that Bowman had suffered a partially collapsed lung.[9][10] Bowman returned from injury on October 20 for the Red Raiders' game against Kansas; Bowman finished 36/46 for 408 yards with three touchdowns and an interception.[11][12] On November 3 against Oklahoma, Bowman left the game at halftime for an unknown reason. It was later revealed that he had a re-occurrence of a partially collapsed lung; Bowman was discharged from the hospital on November 7.[13][14] Bowman finished his freshman year with 227 completions out of 327 attempts for 2,638 yards with 17 touchdowns and 7 interceptions.
