He began to cry even before athletic director Warde Manuel brought him to the podium, Howard could be seen wiping tears away.
Then as he was brought up, Manuel presented Howard with a new maize jersey with his old number, No. 25, and the emotion couldn’t be contained.
Even before Howard spoke, he had to turn away from the microphone to compose himself.
“Tears of joy,” Howard said.
