ARPD Park Director
Bob was one of the great teachers of the game. He went on to become the varsity basketball coach and long-time Athletic Director at St. Elizabeth’s High School in Oakland. Bob still lives in Alameda’s Gold Coast and was kind enough to participate in the filming of PlayBall!
Howard led two Franklin teams to championships in 1963 (Pee Wee and Little Coast).
Tours of Duty: Franklin Park (1963), Rittler (1967), Krusi (1968)
Bob Howard when he was at Rittler could put away the sunflower seeds like no one I have ever seen, he’d leave a pile of empty’s under his chair a foot high. – Mike Bartell
