Early Life

When Dwight David Howard was born on December 8, 1985, in Atlanta, Georgia to parents Dwight Howard Sr. and Sheryl Howard he had a strong desire for basketball from the get-go thanks to his father who once played at the state level and his mother who also played when she attended college which is where they met their son’s grandparents as well.
