Jack Howell accomplished a lot of things enroute to graduating MICDS this spring. He was the top receiver on the Show-Me Bowl football team, and a key attacker on the lacrosse team that finished as runners-up to St. Louis U. High in this springtime sport. That alone earns him honors as MVP for week No. 8.
Howell was the first receiver signed and the tallest receiver among the new recruits at Brown University, Providence, RI.
He looks forward to clashing with his quarterback Thomas Militello who will call signals for Darthmouth this fall.
Howell ran away with the voting this week with 530 votes out of 591 cast, a whopping 89 percent of the total. The rest of the votes went to Haley Pryor, MICDS track and field, Ezekiel Elliott, Burroughs Track and field; Jehu Chesson, Ladue track and field and Carly Wickenheiser, St. Joe soccer.
Patch caught up with Howell and this is what he had to say:
What do you like best about playing for your team?
I enjoy the camaraderie that my teams at MICDS possess. We are all very close friends, and most importantly, we work well as a team. In addition, I love representing the alumni that have been in my shoes previously. There is a great support system at MICDS.
How is your team doing this year.
We lost in the state finals in both football and lacrosse.
What other sports do you play.
Besides lettering in football and lacrosse at MICDS, I play golf, tennis, and pick-up basketball with my friends and family members.
What is your favorite tune in your I-Pod.
I have a little of everything on my I-pod, but rap, rock, and country would probably be the main three genres.
Trey Baur, MICDS baseball
Greg Gannon, Ladue baseball
Foster Bundy, MICDS lacrosse
Katie Prosperi, St. Joe lacrosse
Carolyn Militello, MICDS soccer
Annalise Wagner, John Burroughs track & field
Alli Magaletta, St. Joe soccer and Charlotte Martin, Burroughs lacrosse
The spring selections are complete. Look for more MVP selections starting with fall sports in August.
