Accompanied by great football players

Head football coach Khalil Cartner sees Owens as the perfect addition for his defense. "He just does things the right way.

We got better as a defense today. He reminds me so much of myself when I got started in pro football. I’m excited to put tools into his tool belt and watch him work."
