One On One Feat. Anthony "Mister" Cowan (DC Assault)
Nicknames are a moniker that I have given out for years. Some players do things doing the game that catch my attention and earn them a nickname. Anthony Cowan of DC Assault was one of those players. After watching Cowan command respect and direct traffic for his squad he garnered the nickname Mister. Last season Mister Cowan help lead his squad finished ranked #11 in the country. Cowan and his crew will be returning to the MDC this year in their quest for their first Spotlight title. We got a chance to holler at him after a workout and here’s our One on One.
