Hall of Fame Coach Bobby Bowden holds the record for most wins (410) in the history of major college football (along with 2 national championships and 12 conference championships).

Discover how “Woodlawn” was a big part of Bobby Bowden’s decision to go into coaching, his unusual path to Christianity, his favorite biography written about him, and how he spends his time now that he is retired.
