Thoughts: Sowders was a walk-on for the Cards back in 2018 and has done a great job filling in the depth on the Offensive Line the last few seasons, predominately helping out on the practice squad. Sowders, a local young man from J-Town, was a necessary piece of the puzzle back in 2018 as the Cards needed bodies on the line and did a great job coming in and providing some skill to a group that had difficulty fielding a solid two-deep in Petrinos curtain call season. Satterfield and Ledford worked on the group and Sowders has fought his way into a nice spot playing some backup to some talented lineman recently pulled in in the last couple classes.

I don’t anticipate Emmanual getting significant live action reps this year baring some injuries or a major come up during fall camp, but will still be a noteworthy piece of the line as they move into conference play.

Sweet Tweet:

The Cards do a great job as a program making a footprint in the various communities in the city of Louisville every season. While not in this specific video I’ve noticed Sowders is almost always present in these clips/photos and is out repping the city and the program well. Congrats Emmanual, keep working.
