As a sophomore, Kozens made 11 appearances on the mound as a relief pitcher for the Polar Bears. In both his junior and senior years, Kozens played in every game as both a shortstop and second baseman.
 
Upon graduation from Bowdoin, Kozens spent the next six years as a high school US History and Economics Teacher. Two of those years were spent at the New Hampton School in New Hampshire and the other four at Bourne High School in Massachusetts. While teaching, Kozens also coached football, hockey, and baseball at both schools. During the summer, Kozens coached with the Sandwich Post 188 Legion Baseball program for five years.
