Professional Football Player. For fifteen seasons (1961 to 1975), he played at the tackle and guard positions in the National Football League with the Los Angeles Rams. Born Charles Edward Cowan, he attended Buffalo High School (West Virginia) and played collegiate football at New Mexico Highlands University. Selected by the Rams during the 4th round of the 1961 NFL Draft, he appeared in 206 regular season games. During the course of his career, he established himself as a staple of Los Angeles' offensive live which also included Joe Carollo, Tom Mack, Ken Iman and Joe Scibelli. Individually, Cowan earned Pro-Bowl honors three consecutive seasons (1968 to 1970). Following his football career, his health declined as he became dependent on kidney dialysis machines. He died of complications from kidney failure. (bio by: C.S.)
