Area Male Athlete: PR-B's Howard holding his own at QB


Scoring points has not been a problem for the Pine River-Backus Tigers this season.

The senior moved from wide out to behind center this season, but may as well call the end zone his place of residence.

Howard scored on a 2-yard touchdown run and threw for three more touchdowns in the Tigers’ 40-12 North Star Conference win over the Walker-Hackensack-Akeley Wolves Sept. 7.
