How to pull owner field in VF email template?

I'm having trouble pulling the Opportunity Owner field in a custom VF template I created.


If I use the simple text/html template, I can use:






and all three work fine.  




in the VF template, I have a header:


<messaging:emailTemplate subject="New Win Announcement - {!relatedTo.Account.Name}" recipientType="User" relatedToType="Opportunity">
<messaging:htmlEmailBody >



and if I try to use {!relatedTo.OwnerFullName}, {!relatedTo.OwnerFirstName}, or {!relatedTo.OwnerLastName} ....it gives me a save error saying:


Error: Invalid field OwnerFirstName for SObject Opportunity




Is there a work around for this?  Or do you know if I'm doing anything wrong?   Any help is appreciated.  Thanks!
