Flowers' football career moves to Illinois State
« Back
October 12, 2010 - Former Rockford RiverHawk Bo Flowers has made another major move.

Flowers, a two-sport prep star and Chicago Cubs farmhand who quit baseball after a year with the RiverHawks to return to football at the University of Illinois, has transferred to Illinois State University.

Flowers, who turns 27 on Nov. 12, is a senior and successfully petitioned the NCAA for immediate eligibility earlier this year. The defensive back has four tackles, two solo, in three games with the Redbirds.

The outfielder was an all-stater in both sports in 2002 and the Detroit Tigers drafted him in the fifth round. He was dealt to the Cubs in the Kyle Farnsworth trade in 2005. He joined the RiverHawks as a free agent in 2006 and left baseball for the Illini in 2007. His playing time as an Illini dwindled from 13 games as a freshman in 2007 to five games as a junior last fall.
