Howard was my first neighborhood friend when my family moved from Benbrook to Calmont right beside

South High Mount in the middle of 6th Grade. There was an open field in the block between Howard's house and mine. several of the local boys played football there. They asked me if I wanted to play. I was a RIDGLEA ROUGHNECK and this was TCU TINY MITE territory. the group was playing one day and I was being heralded  as a good player by the neighbor boys especially when I wore my letterjacket from the Roughnecks.

HOWARD walked up to the group and played a few plays and I could tell that HE was the player in this neighborhood. He wizzed around the field and scored every time he touched the ball. He was quiet until the last amazing touchdown he got by running right by and through me. He jogged by going to the huddle for his team real near me and quietly said " I am a TCU TINY MITE!!!

We were friends and Teammates from then on. Howard was a great friend and certainly attracted the ladies!!!

GOD bless Howard and this great family!  Bill Starns
