Without hestitation, Howe’s best Bulldog memory was a 24-23 upset of Northwest Missouri State in 2001. Howe scrambled in from four yards out capping off an eight-play, 75-yard drive with 12 seconds left to stun the record-setting homecoming crowd in Maryville and end the Bearcats’ 41-game conference winning streak in the process…..
In Division II’s oldest trophy game, the Bulldogs got to dip the Ol’ Hickory Stick in purple during the postgame celebration on the field….
Howe currently works for a law firm in Minnesota. He will receive induction in the Truman State University Athletics Hall of Fame along with Cassy (Felkerson) Haddox from the volleyball program. She was the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association MVP and first-team AVCA All-American following the 2001 season in which the program set a school record with 37 wins and only two losses. The team won their first outright MIAA title with a 16-0 record, hosted and won their first NCAA South Central regional championship and advanced to the NCAA Elite Eight before bowing out in a five-set loss to South Dakota State.
Haddox and Howe will be inducted as part of the Alumni & Friends Banquet on Friday night.
