At her hall of fame induction, she said, according to The Herald Journal, “Looking back, I was really lucky,” she said. “My family had no resources for me to go to school. (Coach) Lloydene (Searle) gave me the opportunity to go to school and play. I’m the only one in my family to get a college education. I’ve been teaching for 21 years and try to give back where I can.”
DeAnna Bowers told the Athens Banner-Herald in September 2022 about her son’s success at Georgia, “It’s really surreal. Even last year when me and my husband were being parents and watching this all unfold, it really took us a couple of months to process that all that happened.”

Through this we have built strong relationships with local architects, engineers and building departments. Our services range from conceptual budgeting to scheduling through to the completion of each project.”
Warren Bowers told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution about his son’s success in his two years at Georgia, “I kind of downplayed that he was any good, to tell you the truth. Because I didn’t know how good he was. We had no idea it would be like this. It’s overwhelming.”

She posted a TikTok video, that has since been deleted, saying Perez was “mentally and emotionally abusive,” adding, “This woman would call us fat and out of shape and belittled us about anything,” the newspaper reported.
Lori Perez responded in a statement that said in part, “I am aware of some comments that have been made about me by some former players. These allegations make me sad – in part because they are not true, and in part because that remains the perception of their experience. Out of respect for their privacy, I will not address any of the specific concerns or situations raised. I will say that I am not a coach who bullies or verbally abuses player,” according to The State Hornet.

They had this little firehouse game or something, and it was family vs. family. You had to pump the water and whoever won got to stay, and we were probably on it for 20 or 30 minutes, just beating every family and cheering and celebrating.”
During a 2021 interview with Fox5’s Justin Felder, Warren Bowers said about his family, “We went to Legoland in Southern California and they had these pump fire engines that were on these tracks and you’d pump down to the end and you’d spray water in the thing to win.
Warren Bowers added, laughing, “And they basically let the winners stay on. The whole family is high-fiving, yelling, screaming, almost to the point of taunting the other people. It was horrible, we looked back at that and were like, ‘Wow, that was a poor piece of parenting, but it was sure fun.'”
