Dave Howard

Dave Howard



(High School)
Central Washington College (College)
1944-45 University of Utah (College)
1945-46 University of Utah (College)
1946-47 Portland Indians (PCBL)
1946-47 Spokane Orphans (PCBL)
1947-48 Astoria Royak Chinooks (PCBL)  ??

During World War 2, Howard served in the USMC. A guard at Utah, Howard was declared ineligible in January of 1946 and went to play AAU basketball. Howard joined the Portland Indians in the Pacific League and was transferred to Spokane on January 3, 1947.

APBR roster has Jack Howard playing for Astoria in 1947-48, but Herald and News article from Jan 9, 1948, says it was Dave Howard. I will investigate more when I get to that season.
