Bryson Bowman is a red-shirt senior baseball player at Western Carolina. He wears the number 12 and transferred to Western Carolina from Catawba Valley Community College two years ago. That year he was red-shirted, which means he could not play all season but gained a fifth year of eligibility. Drafted last year in round 33 to MLB team the New York Yankees, Bowman forwent the draft and chose to return to Western Carolina for his senior year.
