Josh Howatson - All-Star Setter

Third-year setter Josh Howatson (Victoria, BC) averaged 9.49 assists/game (5th in the conference) in regular season Canada West play, orchestrating a potent Spartan offense that ranked third in kills (12.24/game) and hitting percentage (.289), to receive a Canada West Second Team All-Star award. Howatson also averaged 0.43 aces (3rd), 1.16 digs, and 0.51 blocks in the regular season. On a serving tear of late, Howatson has recorded 22 service aces in the Spartans’ four playoff matches, including 12 in the quarterfinal series against Winnipeg, and eight in a five-set semifinal win over Saskatchewan.

Why did you choose TWU?
Because of the strong volleyball team, the spiritual environment, and the opportunities to grow in every aspect of life.

What are some community service or ministry experiences you’ve had and what have they meant to you?
I coached elementary and high school volleyball for 3 years. I also sailed with S.A.L.T.S. (Sail and Life Training Society). (The S.A.L.T. Society is a non-profit Christian organization that is dedicated to youth training, with programs designed to teach traditions that are too valuable to be forgotten. Through sail training, each individual is given the opportunity to develop physically, mentally and spiritually in a community setting within the unique atmosphere of shipboard life. A simple service is held aboard every Sunday by the captain and crew and grace is said or sung at each meal.)

What would you do to change the world, and why?
I would eliminate judgment of people by others.

What is your favorite Bible verse and why?
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” Because its so simple and so powerful.

What are your athletic goals at TWU?
To win a CIS national championship.

What is your career ambition?
To play volleyball professionally in Europe following graduation, then get a real job once that is done.

What are some of your hobbies?
I play piano.

Who has been the biggest influence in your life, and why?
My parents, because they are incredible role models.

What was the greatest moment in your life?
In sports, the 2003 World Championships for volleyball. There have been many others in other parts of my life—too many to list and all amazing in their own ways.
