Methodist's Howard Named to National Team of the Week

(FAYETTEVILLE, NC) - Junior Vontre Howard added to his award-winning week, earning running back honors on the national team of the week announced Tuesday by D3football.com.

Monday afternoon the Charleston, South Carolina, native was tabbed the USA South Athletic Conference's offensive player of the week.

Howard toted the rock for a Methodist-record 248 yards Saturday in the Monarchs' 48-34 home victory over 2017 USA South champion Huntingdon College. His 95-yard touchdown scamper early in the third quarter helped push his per-rush average to receiver-like numbers of 12.40 yards per carry.

Earlier in the game against the Hawks Howard had put Methodist on the scoreboard with a 22-yard run around the right end for an early 7-0 lead.
