During his senior season of 2017, current Liberty head coach Scott Jackson’s first year in Lynchburg, Kowalo started all 55 games at second base for the 32-23 Flames.
Before his time at Liberty, Kowalo played two seasons at Potomac State. He hit .371 with a .458 on-base percentage and .507 slugging percentage in 2014, before posting a .405 batting average and a .510 on-base percentage in 2015. That year, he helped to lead the Catamounts to the Region XX Championship.
