Regarded as one of Tipperary's most versatile players ever, Cowan joined the team during the 1969 championship and was a regular member of the starting fifteen until his retirement after the 1977 championship. His career coincided with a sharp downturn in the fortunes of the team, and he ended his playing days without any success.
At club level Cowan was a one-time All-Ireland medalist with Borris-Ileigh, after beginning his career with Moyne-Templetuohy. In addition to this he has also won four county club championship medals.
