Dan Howell back

Dan Howell returned to practice Tuesday after missing last week after the sudden death of his father, Keith.
And he met the media today to discuss what was undoubtedly the toughest week of his life.
Howell said his father died the day after the Oklahoma game because of complications from heart surgery performed earlier in the week. He was 57.
“I guess it was his time to go,” Howell said.
Howell spent the week at his home in Newhall, Calif. The funeral was Saturday, shortly before UW kicked off against Fresno State. He said he was able to get frequent updates from a roommate, then watched the replay Monday after returning to Seattle.
Howell said he doesn’t think he’ll have any trouble returning to the field.
“I’ll be able to complete all of my assignments,” he said. “That’s not a problem for me. The problem for me will be handling this change.”
He said the reality of his father’s passing began to hit him Tuesday when he called home and his mother answered instead of his father, as was usually the case.
Returning home did allow Howell to watch his younger brother, Delano, play for California powerhouse Hart High School on Friday night.
Here’s a story detailing how Delano scored four touchdowns in that game.
Delano Howell, who is considering UW, is regarded as a top 100 recruit for the class of 2008.
