The 2015 season is Brad Bowser's fifth season at the helm of the Taylor softball program. Before being named head coach, Bowser served as an assistant under former head coach Robin Lockridge.
Before coming to Taylor, Bowser was the head softball coach for two seasons at LeTourneau University in Longview, Texas. During this span, his team's broke 16 school records including wins in a season, batting average, hits, runs batted in, runs scored, doubles, triples, on base percentage, slugging percentage, walks, total bases, shut-outs in a season, saves in a season and strikeouts. Four players earned All-Conference honors and eight were recognized as Academic All-Conference.
While at LeTourneau, Bowser also served as the Associate Dean of Students and Director of Residence Life.
Bowser has continued to display a strong commitment to success, both on and off the field. "I love building teams, creating vision, and helping students and young professionals discover and go deeper with the question of who God has created them to be," said Bowser.
The 2014 season was a remarkable one, as Bowser and the Trojans completed the most successful season in program history with a final record of 42-17. Bowser was named Coach of the Year in the Crossroads League, while freshmen Lauren Ehle and Alex Lovelace earned Second-Team All-American recognition, the first Taylor players to ever do so. Multiple players received Crossroads League recognition, All-Region accolades and academic honors.
The Trojans set season school records in team batting average, runs scored, hits, home runs, and RBI, among others. Taylor also won its first ever regular season league title, its first league tournament title since 1999, and capped it all off with a dramatic win over Georgetown in the NAIA National Tournament, the first win for the program on the national stage.
Bowser is married to his wife Jane and the couple has two children.
