Desmond Howard’s father was a former semi-pro basketball player for the Jolly Jokers, while his mother ran a day care center. His parents divorced when he was thirteen years old and Howard went to live with his father. He attended St. Joseph High School in Cleveland, where Desmond played American football and by that time he had gained All-Ohio and All-American honors. He also played basketball and even received the varsity letter (award for excellence in school activities) from it, as well as three varsity letters from football.

While studying at the University of Michigan, Howard played for college team, managing to win honors, such as Maxwell Award, Walter Camp Award and Heisman Trophy during the short period of time. After graduating with a bachelors degree in communications in 1992, Desmond began his professional career in the NFL Draft of 1992, playing for the Washington Redskins for two years. Later, he played for the Jacksonville Jaguars  and Green Bay Packers – one season for each team. Strangely, playing for the Jacksonville Jaguars he produced only moderate results but while playing for the Green Bay Packers, his results were record-breaking, including being in the 1996 Super Bowl-winning team, and voted the MVP.

In 1997, Desmond signed with Oakland Raiders but returned to Green Bay in 1999. Because of multiple injuries and unsatisfactory performance, Howard was exempted from the team, so he signed with the Detroit Lions and stayed there until retirement in 2002. Throughout his career, spanning eleven NFL seasons, Howard gained 12,451 all-purpose yards: 10,854 Return yards and 1,597 receiving yards. The number of his touchdowns was 17. Undoubtedly, those eleven NFL seasons helped him to gain a big part of his wealth.

Desmond gained many awards but probably the most important are Pro Bowl, NFL Alumni Special Teams Player of the Year, NFL Punt Return Yards Leader  and others. He was rated as the Most Valuable Player of Super Bowl XXXI  and he was conscripted into the Class of the College Football Hall of Fame in 2011.

Howard also appeared on television, as he was a guest star in an episode of the TV series “Living Single”, and in an episode of the series “Everybody Loves Raymond”. More, he became a cover athlete for the NCAA Football video games, called Football 06. All added to his net worth. Now he works for TV ESPN on college games, and for the Detroit Lions home channel.

In his personal life, Howard is married to Rebkah Howard, who is a licensed attorney and a proficient public relations, manager and marketing executive. The couple has three children, and they all currently live in Miami, Florida.
