Eagle Chosen for All-American Bowl Jan. 4

Chaminade Julienne senior linebacker Darrien Howard will participate in the 2013 Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl, presented by the United States Marine Corps and hosted at the Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif.

The 6-foot-2, 250-pound middle linebacker and West Virginia University commit joins 100 of the nation’s elite high school football players Friday, Jan. 4, at the 2nd annual East versus West showcase. The game is being nationally televised on the NFL Network at 9 p.m. EST.

Howard is considered a four-star recruit by both rivals.com and scouts.com, and ranks among ESPN’s top 300 high school football players nationally. The four-year varsity starter at CJ never missed being named to the Greater Catholic League (GCL) North First Team All-League. He also earned Division IV First Team All-State honors in each of his final two seasons with the Eagles. 

The Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl recognizes student athletes who embody the Marine Corps values of honor, courage and commitment. Players are selected to participate based on academic excellence, proven physical fitness and quality of character. Find more details at www.semperfidelisfootball.com.
