Kenny Owens was born on July 29, 1990 and grew up in Fayetville, North Carolina. He played for the Jack Britt High School football team and graduated in 2009.
Once he came to North Carolina, he opted to walk on to the North Carolina Tarheels football team fall 2008. He had the confidence to do so from playing varsity football at Jack Britt and winning varsity letters two years in a row. He started offense and defense and had earned second-team all-conference honors during his senior year. That season, he also made 70 tackles, 18 for loss and four sacks. His football skills were helped by training in track and field and he was also a member of the National Honor Society.
Kenny Owens entered the 2010 season as a running back. But off the field, he likes to go fishing with dad and brother. He also has a bizarre pre-game ritual of eating an entire back of sunflower seeds!
