Surrounded by fellow Ladue Horton Watkins High School Rams varsity football teammates, senior Nate Howard made the announcement live on KSDK on January 30, 2015 that he would be attending and playing football for the University of Missouri.
The 6′ 3″, 230 lb. LHWHS Rams’ defensive end said the Mizzou coaches did a great job of recruiting him and he “felt the fit.” Howard has been heavily recruited by colleges across the country, including universities in Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, New Mexico, Ohio and Oklahoma.
Howard and the Rams finished the football season with a much-celebrated 12-2 record. The team was National Division Champions of the Suburban Central Conference, District Champions and State Semifinalists. Nate was among teammates named All Conference and All State athletes.
