The Tewaaraton Foundation has named former Johns Hopkins lacrosse star and U.S. Lacrosse National Hall of Famer Joe Cowan as the recipient of the third annual Tewaaraton Legends Award.
"Joe Cowan is a natural selection for the third Tewaaraton Legends Award," said Jeff Harvey, chairman of the Tewaaraton Foundation. “He was an outstanding player during a championship era at Johns Hopkins and, just as importantly, he has always been loyal to his alma mater and the game of lacrosse.”
Cowan's illustrious lacrosse career began at Friends, where he was a standout midfielder. In 1963, he helped the team win the Maryland Scholastic Association Championship.
