Goldsboro’s Bowden makes impact in East-West All-Star Game

2 min read

GREENSBORO — Goldsboro High standout, Xzavior Bowden, made a big impact late in the North Carolina Coaches Association East-West All-Star Football Game.

The running back and linebacker had been on the sidelines waiting for his chance for most of the second half. Finally, in the fourth the East called on him to play fullback. Bowden took the challenge and cleared the way for Keon Caudle’s game-clinching touchdown for the East, who won 20-8.

“It was regular,” Bowden said. “I just did my thing as a teammate.”

Bowden also had three carries for 17 yards in the second half and six carries for 25 yards for the game. Bowden said the game didn’t go how he wanted, but was glad to get the win. He is the first player to represent Goldsboro in an East West All-Star Game since Julius Murphy in 2013. Bowden finished his storied career with 4,385 rushing yards on 563 carries to go along with 49 rushing touchdowns. On defense, he finished with 262 tackles, four interceptions, two sacks, four forced fumbles and two interception returned for a touchdown. Bowden will play college football at Independence Community College.
