Southern Quarterback Austin Howard
5-11, 208, Sr., Edgard, La.
Completed 22-of-32 passes for 338 yards, five touchdowns and no interceptions as the Jaguars defeated Arkansas-Pine Bluff 47-40 in Little Rock, Ark.
Did You Know: Austin’s 8,369 yards passing puts him just 43 yards behind Grambling great Doug Williams for eighth all-time in passing yards in SWAC history. Austin has been a starter from the day he stepped on Southerns’ campus, winning BOXTOROW Rookie of the year honors in 2014. He is 370 yards away from passing fellow Southern quarterback Dray Joseph as the Jags all-time leading passer.
