Dowling shines on both sides of ball in WKU spring game

Making his Western Kentucky debut, Jon Dowling turned in a standout performance in the Hilltoppers spring game last weekend.

The former Southeast High standout, who left Florida during mid season last year, showed he is capable of playing on both sides of the ball, which he has been promised he would be allowed to do.

Dowling played safety, receiver and returned kickoffs for his Red team, which lost 27-11 (*ck). He caught a seven yard touchdown pass and returned three kickoffs for 57 yards, including a long of 29 yards.

The 6-3, 185 pounder also made his presence on defense. He was third on the Red team with four solo tackles and five total.

Former Braden River star Tevin Bryant, who is a walk-on trying to earn a scholarship, caught a 55-yard pass and ran the ball once for six yards in a limit appearance.
