Warren Central introduces new head football coach

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – On a cold, dreary Tuesday afternoon, a small ray of light burst forward inside the Warren Central High School library – except it wasn’t from the sun.

Athletic Director Jason Esters officially introduced the Dragons new head football coach Cary Fowler, a man with a long history with the game.

Fowler, who replaces Joel Taylor after his retirement from football in January, is a Hopkinsville, Kentucky, native, and played college football for Murray State.

After finishing his playing career, Fowler got involved in coaching high school football in Texas.

Fowler continued his coaching career into the college level where he spent the past two years as the defensive coordinator for Eastern Illinois.

He takes over a program that has lost 35 consecutive games, but during his introductory press conference, he assured both players and staff that he is here to help right the ship and get Warren Central back to winning ways.

“We’re going to have to do a lot of different things so that we can create momentum,” Fowler added. “I want to be able to create the momentum that kids want to come play here. That’s the key. That’s a major thing that I want to try and create is excitement and fun. Let them have fun. Exciting and fun is contagious. If that happens, then the better football players from around this area will want to play at Warren Central like they used to.”

For Fowler, there’s no place he’d rather be than coaching right here in Bowling Green.
