I lost both of my parents in elementary. After sacrifices made by my family and a number of moves to different cities and states, I find myself beating the odds everyday. Basketball has pulled me out of my harsh situation and put me on track to better my life and those closest to me.
I broke my arm in football in the 8th grade and realised it wasn’t for me so tried out for basketball when the season came around. The highlight of my career is becoming a professional and joining the Raiders, I just want to become the best Javis Howard I can be before hanging it up.
I’m really excited the Raiders fan support and atmosphere during the games. I’ll work hard to give you guys something to cheer for.
