MVP Award To Howiey NEW YORK (UPI)-If you were surprised that Chuck Howiey won the automobile as the Most Valuable Player in the Super Bowl, you're not alone. Chuck Howiey was, too. The Dallas Cowboys' linebacker received the auto presented by Sport Magazine to the Super Bowl MVP at a luncheon Tuesday and admitted he was flabbergasted'when he learned he was the winner. Howiey was the first-member of a losing team to win the award since an auto was first presented to the MVP of the NFL championship game starting in 1958 and then the Super Bowl five years ago. The Cowboys were beaten, 1613, on Jan.l 17 by the Baltimore Colts on Jim O'Brien's field 1 goal with five seconds remaining. "I was really surprised," said Howiey, "I didn't think a) member of the losing team- especially a member of the defensive team—would get the, award:' I was in the shower, when . they came in to notify •• me. It was a great honor and it's almost beyond my comprer! hensiqn to receive the award." When asked whom he would have voted for, Howiey hesitated and then smiled, "I'm prejudiced." WEDNESDAY. JANUARY 27, 19/1 Tim Ehman Whit Bibbens Men's Bowling Tipton Frosh on Cage, Tribune Sports Editor' Pats Debate Draft Choice By JOE CARNICELU UPI Sports Writer NEW YORK (UPI)-Time is running out on the Boston Patriots. ; The Patriots, who finished with the worst record in the National Football League last season and thus earned the No. 1 choice, in the college draft, aren't sure what to do with it. The draft opens Thursday at 10 a.m. EST at New York's Belmont Plaza Hotel and the Boston front office must decide whether to exercise the choice and take Stanford's Jim Plunkett, the Heisman Trophy winning quarterback, or trade the rights . for established veterans. : "We haven't made any decision yet," said a Patriots' spokesman Tuesday; "We're still thinking it over.' We may still trade the choice. If that happens, it could be anytime up to Thursday morning." Representatives from close to 20 pro teams have been on the Patriots doorstep ever since the season ended. At least eight teams are in dire need of a quarterback and Plunkett, who. set NCAA career and single season passing records, seems to fit the bill perfectly. The Baltimore Colts, the world champions who have two . first-round choices, are one of the leading candidates for Boston's choice.
