Former Tiger and NFL Star Reggie Howard Returns to Memphis With a Mission

Posted By on Mon, Sep 24, 2007 at 4:00 AM

The only man to intercept a Tom Brady pass in a Super Bowl, former Memphis Tiger defensive back Reggie Howard, is back in Memphis to make a difference following his retirement from the National Football League.

Howard starred at Kirby High School and walked-on at the University of Memphis, where he suffered a broken neck in a game against Alabama-Birmingham. He made the Carolina Panthers as an undrafted free agent in 2000 and left the team during training camp this year.

Howard and his wife Artesia returned to his hometown and launched the Reggie Howard Foundation with a mission to provide activities that build leadership skills and self-confidence to area youth.

The foundation will host a charitable concert September 28th at the Botanic Gardens, with proceeds going to Memphis City Schools.
