BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – If you thought the Brevard Seminole Club couldn’t top last year’s event at the Eau Gallie Yacht Club when former Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher and legendary broadcaster Gene Deckerhoff appeared and spoke to hundreds of Seminole fans in attendance, think again. 

The Brevard Seminole Club and their new President David Treffer will welcome former FSU legendary head coach Bobby Bowden to the Astronauts Memorial Foundation-Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex for a special screening of the full-length feature documentary, “The Bowden Dynasty” on February 23.

From veteran TV and film Producer John Corry, along with Rob Harvell and Brian Goodwin, the producers of ESPN Films’ “The Book of Manning” and “I Hate Christian Laettner,” The Bowden Dynasty is “a story of faith, family and football.”

The film explores the life and times of Bowden, the coach with a team of loyal assistants and players who fought against all odds and countless obstacles to forge one of the greatest achievements in the history of sports.

Bowden coached in Tallahassee for 34 years and had just one losing season, his first with FSU in 1976 in which the Noles went 5-6. Bowden went on to lead FSU to an Associated Press and Coaches Poll National Title in 1993 and a BCS National Championship in 1999, as well as 12 Atlantic Coast Conference championships since FSU joined the conference in 1991.

The movie will be played on the four large screens at The Astronauts Memorial Foundation-Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex with better than Imax sound.  The event is presented by Mercedes Benz of Melbourne and also appearing will be FSU alum and current ESPN College Game Day host Lee Corso.

Corso played baseball and football for the Noles from 1953 through 1957 and coached in the sport from 1959 through 1984 for several teams. He retired from coaching after spending one year with the Orlando Renegades of the USFL in 1985.

Corso joined ESPN in 1987 where he remains and is now best known for picking the teams he thinks will win the big college game of the of the week by placing that schools mascots head on his own at the end of the very popular college football pregame show, ESPN College GameDay.

An event being held at the Kennedy Space Center wouldn’t be complete without an Astronaut or two, and the Brevard Seminole Club has that covered.

Retired United States Navy captain, former NASA astronaut and FSU graduate Winston Scott will be in attendance, as will retired astronaut and test pilot Bob Springer.

The two space veterans of five combined Space Shuttle missions will personally give Bobby Bowden and his wife of 69-years, Ann, a tour of the Kennedy Space Center Visitors Complex.
