TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Tuesday night was a night to celebrate a legacy Bobby Bowden FSU's head football coach for more than 30 years.

He turns 90 years old this week and Tuesday was a night to celebrate him.

There was some roasting throughout the night.

"Anyway good to see you and Coach dangumit I love ya," said Steve Spurier Impersonator. And lots of toasting.

"Coach you're not just one of a kind you are a once in a lifetime blessing for the university," said Charlie Burns.

From some of Bobby Bowden's former assistant coaches and players.

"He just means so much to so many people through the years," Said Mickey Andrews.

But it was Bobby himself who stole the show.

"I've had so many nice things said about me tonight, what if I die and go to hell," said Bowden?

Along with the party his cake was also a smash.

A room full of people, celebrating Bobby's life and legacy over the past 90 years. A night to be proud of.

"Well I did enjoy the stories, you know because a lot of the stories occurred forty years ago and I'd forgotten them. And hearing Mike Martin and Jim Gladden and Mickey Andrews and Billy Sacston," said Bowden.
