|Coach Martin believes that his young quarterback may be
the best to come through Montgomery in the last twenty years. Howell,
who is from Indianapolis, Indiana, is a prototypical drop-back passer in
the mold of Drew Bledsoe according to Martin. He's also a full qualifier
having graduated high school with a 3.5 GPA and 1010 SAT.
We had a chance to interview Howell recently, and here's what he said about team and individual goals for 2002:
Tell us a little bit about your high school career.
What were your senior year stats?
How did you end up at Montgomery? Rockville, Maryland is a long
way from Indiana.
You've been there for a while now. How do you like it?
Describe your first season with the Fighting Knights.
Your first start versus GMC, which ended up the NJCAA Champ.
That's a tall order!
Describe yourself as a quarterback.
Coach Martin says that you'll do some roll outs. Are you doing
anything to increase your mobility?
How would your teammates describe your demeanor on the field?
What are your team and individual goals for 2002? I know you open
with a tough Erie C.C. squad.
And how are you doing academically at Montgomery?
Coach Martin mentioned a number of four-year schools that have
taken an interest in you already. Who is recruiting you at this point?
Which schools seem most interested or serious?
NOTE: Coach Martin also mentioned Purdue, Indiana, and Washington State. Those first two schools may receive consideration given that they're in Howell's home state.
Tell us about a few other guys to watch on Montgomery's team next
JCFootball.com has tabbed Howell as one of its quarterbacks to watch next season. He's got the whole package in terms of academics, quality playing time as a freshmen, stature, and leadership qualities.
Coach Martin added that he's got a young defense, but many sophomores on what could be a dangerous offense. The whole wide receiver corps is between 6-3 and 6-6.
Another player to keep an eye on is 6-1, 280-pound fullback, Carl Clyburn from Fairfax County, Virginia. He has set all kinds of strength records with the team and loves to pancake linebackers and linemen.
Montgomery's Steve Howell is QB to Watch in '02
