Owens is no stranger to the GW community. As the founder of the youth
mentoring program Super Leaders, Owens has used the Universitys
facilities to host meetings of the peer leadership and self-empowerment
GW has been very supportive of the Super Leaders program,
said Owens. For these students to be able to meet at the University
and dream of going to school here is very important.
During his discussion, Owens credited the attention to detail and preparation
skills honed under the tutelage of Hall of Fame coaches Vince Lombardi
and George Allen for many of the successes he has experienced off the
