The 5-foot 10-inch, 170-pound junior sensation from Cleveland, Ohio is the second Heisman recipient from the University of Michigan. Winner of the 1991 Heisman Trophy, Howard’s acrobatic catches made him one of the most electrifying players ever to play the college game. Desmond played professional football in the National Football League for the Washington Redskins (1992–1994), Jacksonville Jaguars (1995), Green Bay Packers (1996, 1999), Oakland Raiders (1997–1998) and Detroit Lions (1999–2002). Howard was voted the Most Valuable Player of Super Bowl XXXI and is the first and only special teams player to win the award. He is one of only four players to win both the Heisman Trophy and Super Bowl MVP; Roger Staubach, Jim Plunkett, and Marcus Allen are the others. Desmond enters his 9th year as ESPN GameDay analyst having covered the Rose Bowl, Fiesta Bowl, Sugar Bowl, and National Championship games for ESPN in January 2012.
