He attended Sun Valley High School in Indian Trail, North Carolina, where he played high school football and threw for 13,415 yards and 145 touchdowns, while rushing for 3,621 yards and 60 touchdowns.

Sam Howell career
Howell entered his true freshman season after starting with redshirt freshmen Jace Ruder and Cade Fortin and winning the quarterback position. He won his professional responsibilities at training camp, becoming the first true freshman to start in the season-opening game for Tar Heels. He debuted the tar heel while standing against South Carolina. Howell finished his true freshman season with 234 of 388 attempts for 3,347 yards and 35 touchdowns, including 7 interceptions for the regular season. He was honored with the Military Bowl MVP for his performance, where he had a two-yard touchdown reception on a trick play. Howell made 38 touchdown passes, which was another record for the 2019 season at both the Carolina and FBS levels for any true freshman quarterback.
As he entered his sophomore season, Howell received much national acclaim. He started the season a bit slowly playing against teams like Syracuse and Boston College, but later had a career hit with 443 passing yards in a 44-41 loss to Virginia. But his performance earned him the honor of ACC Player of the Week. After playing two more games, Howell took on Wake Forest where he broke multiple records and added another passing yard for the Tar Heels, 59-53 and a win for the Tar Heels. Howell’s performance in the 2020 campaign earned him many records which influenced his career and got him media attention. This earned him another honor of second-team All-ACC honors.
Similar to his sophomore season, Howell received public praise for his junior campaign, which included another record-breaking streak, leading to speculation of his entry into the NFL Draft. After the speculation drew media attention, Howell answered questions and denied the rumors that he was not now considering making his NFL entry for the season through any of his tweets. Rather, he would try to play one more game with the team instead of making his NFL draft.

After making predictions for the 2022 NFL Draft, North Carolina Tar Heels’ record-breaking draft, Sam Howell was eliminated from the first three rounds.
