Howell Named Third-Team All-American

First he was named the best in the Santa Clarita Valley.

Then in the Northern Division. Then came all-state recognition.

Now Hart High senior running back Delano Howell is one of the best in America.

The Stanford Cardinal commit, who broke Hart's single-season and career rushing records, leading the Indians to a Foothill League title and to Northern Division runner-up status, was named to the EA Sports third-team multi-purpose All-American team Monday.

It's one more award to lug with him off to Palo Alto.

He'll add it to the Foothill League and All-Santa Clarita Valley Player of the Year awards, the Northern Division Offensive Player of the Year honors and a spot on the all-state first-team multi-purpose selection already received in the postseason.

Howell became the first Hart High player to record 2,000 rushing yards in a single season, gaining 2,249 to surpass former Indians tailback Ted Iacenda's record. A three-year varsity starter, he also passed Iacenda's 12-year-old career rushing record along the way.

Howell was also second on his Indians team with 650 receiving yards. He scored 36 total touchdowns, 29 of them on the ground.

The 5-foot-11 senior also played both defensive back and defensive end at times and was the Indians' starting punter.

He was the Foothill League's only All-American selection.

Jacoby Harris, a senior quarterback from Northwestern High of Miami, Fla. is the National Player of the Year.
