My Legacy: Jett Howard | From the NBA Sidelines to IMG Academy
Imagine growing up on the NBA sidelines and watching your dad compete in front of tens of thousands. You begin to learn that he was the 5th overall draft selection in the 1994 NBA Draft and that he went on to win two NBA Championships with the Miami Heat. And, after completing his 19-year playing career, he is currently making history as the head coach of the University of Michigan Men's Basketball team. Would this inspire you to pick up the sport and to begin to create your own legacy?
For Jett Howard, that's exactly the pathway he's chosen. Son of Juwan Howard, Jett learned early-on that basketball was a key component in the Howard family, and he's showcasing day in and day out that he has the potential to make a name for himself both on the court as well as outside the gym. Jett is currently a junior IMG Academy basketball student-athlete competing for the Ascenders as a small forward. After seeing his father's rebounding skills, his mid-range game, and his communication efforts since he can remember, Jett is focused on developing his talents in Bradenton.
