Former Highland Park outfielder Jake Howeth earned a third-team selection on the Texas High School Baseball Coaches Association’s Class 4A All-State Team.
Howeth, who isn’t sure if he’s going to play football for Northwest Missouri State or baseball for New Mexico or Texas State, is fresh off an appearance in last night’s North Texas High School Baseball Coaches Association All-Star Game at Grand Prairie’s QuikTrip Park. Former Scots teammate Ford Stainback also played in the contest, which the West team won, 2-1.
Howeth led the Scots in hitting with a .473 average this past season. He hit eight home runs and had 35 RBI.
Howeth will also play in Sunday’s THSBCA All-Star Game at Round Rock’s Dell Diamond. Next month, he will play in the Texas High School Coaches Association’s All-Star Football Game at Cowboys Stadium.
