WHO HE IS: Paul Pasqualoni didn't know what to make of him.
There Joseph Kowalewski stood, all 6-foot-3, 200 pounds of him. He had the speed of a back, the hands of a receiver and the potential to be great. The only question would be, where Kowalewski would line up.
"We didn't know what he would be," Pasqualoni said. "We made him a tight end.
WHY HE WILL HAVE A BREAKTHROUGH YEAR: Kowalewski added 50 or 60 pounds according to Pasqualoni and may challenge Lenny Cusumano and Joe Donnelly for playing time.
"He runs really fast and he catches the ball really well," Pasqualoni said. "So I really enjoyed working with him and watching him this spring."
