Bowser stars in all three phases at MSU

Tay Bowser came to Mississippi State as a two-way player out of high school five years ago and will end his Bulldog career in the same capacity.

The 6-foot-3, 200-pounder has lined up at both wide receiver and cornerback as well as starring on special teams throughout his time in Starkville.

Bowser began his career at wide receiver before making a switch to the secondary in 2007. He remained at cornerback until late last season before making the move back to receiver.

"Whether I am playing wide receiver, special teams or defense I am still giving it my all," Bowser said. "I'm not disappointed. I want to let the scouts and everybody know that I can play more than one position. I'm an athlete and I can go from receiver to cornerback and still play on special teams."

Bowser is hoping that wide range of skills will land him a job on an NFL roster next season, particularly at cornerback.

"My goal for next year is to hopefully be on a team," Bowser said. "I'm going to give great effort and if it's meant to be it's meant to be. If not I will be working but I would love to see myself on a team next year. I would love to play cornerback because you don't see too many 6-3 corners at the next level. I want to do something that you don't see very often. It just stands out for me to be 6-3 and be able to play cornerback."

Bowser has played in 34 career games at MSU earning one start. He has hauled in two passes for 25 yards while making 31 tackles, one tackle for less, one interception, one pass breakup and two blocked kicks.
