But he’s noticed something special in Oklahoma City that he hadn’t experience at any of his previous stops.

"How hard we’ve worked in camp, I’ve been really impressed with that,” Bowen said. "Usually by the second or third week I’m really standing out in practice because the guys’ energy levels go down. That’s when I can kind of show what I can do. But it didn’t happen. I couldn’t get the signature days because everyone was working so hard.”
