Ron Howard, affectionately known as “Mr. Mad Ant”, has played professional basketball since graduating from Valparaiso University in 2006. He’s gained expertise in his field with a stint with the New York Knicks, two with the Milwaukee Bucks and most recently, the Indiana Pacers. He has enjoyed playing for the Fort Wayne Mad Ants since their inaugural season. He is NBADL’s All-Time Leading Scorer, a three time All-Star, and is the 2013 and 2014 recipient of the Jason Collier Sportsmanship Award. He was awarded All D-League First Team and Co-MVP of the NBADL for the 2014 season. He went on to lead the Mad Ants to winning the 2014 NBADL Championship. Since stepping foot in Fort Wayne, Ron has felt at home and has been anxious to bring Game Day Sports Camp to the community. Ron has a wife and three children and is deeply devoted to his faith, family, and working with children in the community.

Reesha Howard (wife of Ron Howard), found Fort Wayne to be a great place to raise her children and knew in her heart that this was “home”. Fort Wayne also felt like the perfect fit for the family business. After many prayers, years of planning and careful consideration, Game Day Sports Camp was realized. Reesha is a fixture in every aspect of the business and is very committed to it’s ongoing success. She also writes & blogs, and homeschools the Howard children.
