“Father Cowhig was a gifted athlete, an outstanding student who was first prefect of our class at the seminary, and a great Army chaplain who mixed easily with people,’’ Bishop Joseph Maguire, the retired head of the Diocese of Springfield and a former two-sport athlete at Boston College, told the Globe.
