Get to know former UCF DB Tay Gowan

Former UCF Knight Tay Gowan chose to opt out of the 2020 NFL Draft season due to COVID-19 and his desire to protect his premature daughter.

Gowan faced a lot of adversity throughout the years. He went from being homeless to now having the opportunity to be selected in the 2021 NFL Draft.  The reason behind his passion for the game is that he loves football and doesn’t want to see his family struggle another day.

Gowan said, “I’ve struggled and been homeless all my life, but that has never stopped me from having good grades to achieve my main goal in life to make it to the NFL.”

In his free time, he likes to rap and he plans on releasing his second album on draft day.
