Tracy Howard at University of Miami

As reported on The Sports Network (sportsnetwork.com):

“Tracy Howard, CB, Miami-Florida – At just 5-11 and 175 pounds, Howard was not the biggest or most athletic cornerback recruit, but when it comes to flat-out cover skills, few compare to the Miramar High School product. As a versatile defender in coverage and a very physical player for his size, Howard should be making big plays in the Hurricane defensive backfield as a starter from game one.”

Leading the way is Alvin Davis, the band director, who is now a finalist for National Teacher of the Year.


"I see every report card. I see every interim, and if the grades aren’t up to par, they’re gonna take a break from being in my program," Davis said… Ninety-percent of Miramar students graduate, but nobody beats the band. For four years in a row, 100 percent of the band has graduated and gone on to college. Davis said his kids would probably describe him as "rough."

"His number one priority and goal is to get all of us to college," said Sandra Romero, a member of the band.
