Oregon long snapper Drew Howell, a senior from Tehachapi High School (Tehachapi, California), enters his fourth season in the Oregon program.

Before joining the Ducks, Howell was a star prep prospect. Howell was a honoree of the Chris Sailer Kicking “Top 12,” which recognizes the top-12 prospects across the country, and was rated the top long snapper at the camp. Howell earned second-team South Sequoia League honors as a junior and first team as a senior. Along with his time on offense and special teams, Howell was also a sensational linebacker. As a senior he finished with 130 tackles, 2.5 sacks and one interception.

In 2010, Howell immediately took over long-snapping duties as a true freshman. He appeared in 12-of-13 games for the Ducks with his only absence being against New Mexico in the season opener – the Ducks didn’t punt in the game. He also recorded one tackle on the year.

In 2011, Howell again appeared in 12 games for the Ducks. He posted a bench press max of 315 lbs in winter conditioning.

In 2012, Howell started 12-of-13 games at long snapper for the Ducks and had a solo tackle against Arizona State.

Going into the 2013 season, Howell will return to his starting job as the team’s long snapper. Howell, if he has a strong season, could make a serious case for an NFL-caliber player. A four-year starter at the University of Oregon is a pretty solid accomplishment.
