Dwayne Lorenzo Bowe (born September 21, 1984 in Miami, Florida) is an American football wide receiver for the Kansas City Chiefs of the National Football League. He was drafted by the Chiefs 23rd overall in the 2007 NFL Draft. He played college football at Louisiana State. Born to an unwed mother and a largely absent father, Dwayne Bowe and his older brother Wayne were raised by their paternal grandparents, KW and Dorothy Williams in Miami, Florida. At Parkway Middle school, Bowe struggled with academics and was involved with street gangs and fighting. He grew into a big, athletic teenager but was not involved in sports until his junior year in high school, when he was hospitalized after being beaten badly in a nightclub fight. As a way to give up fighting, Dwayne decided to join the high school football team at Miami Norland High School. In his very first game, he returned a kickoff 101 yards for a touchdown.
