"I think it helps, getting to know people," Joe told Dawgman.com about his father's influence. "He doesn't really push me. He lets me do what I like to do, but it helps when meeting people and going places."
Joe had an impressive workout, running a 4.43 40, a 4.38 shuttle, jumping 28
inches, and lifting 185 pounds 8 times. "Actually, I've never run that fast before,"
Cowan said. "It was a little better than what I was expecting."
Cowan also runs a little track for St. John Bosco, with his personal best in the
400 being a 48.8. On the gridiron, Joe was a first team all-league and all-area
selection, catching 38 balls for 917 yards and 9 scores in 2001.
"I'm able to get open and find the open spaces on my routes," Cowan said when

Joe is hearing from a lot of top D1 schools right now. "UCLA, a lot of the Pac-10,
the Ivy League, Notre Dame, Florida, Michigan a little bit," he said. "But no one
team is coming stronger than any other one."
Any schools he wants to find out more about? "I haven't really thought about it
too much, but off the top of my head I would say Notre Dame, UCLA," said
Cowan. "I would also say Washington, but I already know so
much about them. Stanford, maybe. But I need to think more about it."
Joe has obviously been exposed to a lot of purple and gold, and it shows. "I have
a lot of friends of my Dad, close family friends who live in the Seattle area," Joe
said. "It's a real cool place. I think Washington's campus is just awesome."
Cowan has some basic summer camping plans laid out, but things are still
subject to change. "I'll be going to the UCLA day camp and probably the
Washington camp too, but I haven't made any final plans yet," he said. "Right
now I'm running track and when that's over I'll be going right back into football."
