Terrell Owens has made a name for himself since he was selected in the third round of the 1996 NFL draft. From breaking several NFL records to controversial spats with the teams he has played for to his touchdown celebrations, the NFL wide receiver has been in the headlines a lot over his career. Owens hasn’t appeared in a NFL game since 2010 and was released from the Seattle Seahawks in 2012 making him less prevalent in the news until recently.
Last Wednesday, T.O. made his debut as a semi-processional bowler at the United States Bowling Congress Open Championship. Owens spent an increasing amount of time around bowling after becoming the celebrity owner of the Dallas Strikers, one of the five-player teams in the new Professional Bowlers Association League. After becoming involved with the Dallas Strikers, Owens started working with coaches and professional bowlers to improve his own game.
Owens rolled games of 185, 129, and 161 for a 475 series at the tournament, which took place at the National Bowling Stadium in Nevada. His team, Bowlers Journal International, included Tom Clark, the PBA commissioner, Mike Jakubowski and Jason Thomas, from the PBA’s online bowling channel Xtra Frame, and Ed Baur, the United States Bowling Congress Open Champions titlist.
