Gary Bowen, left, who accompanied his son Blanton (not pictured) at Sunday’s car wash benefit for Josh Hernandez, “coached” members of the Early High School Longhorns football team — including Zach Fox, shown — in the art of washing cars. The players held this benefit at Doc’s Drug Store in Early, and are auctioning a variety of gift items, to help the family of the Brownwood High athlete who was seriously injured in a motor vehicle accident in May.
