Day 5: Fab Five Alert

Omertime

Today is Day 5 of the Omer. Hod sheb’hesed, the gratitude and humility that comes from a deep place of love

For Day 5, hod sheb’hesed, I’m going with a member of the Fab Five, Juwan Howard. 

Howard was the first member of that famed class to commit to Michigan and was responsible for helping recruit the other four members: Chris Webber, Jalen Rose, Jimmy King, and Ray Jackson.

They were five upstart freshmen who revolutionized college basketball, with their youthful confidence, baggy shorts, and swagger. They were a joy for me to watch and root for even if they never won an NCAA Championship. 

It might seem strange to choose a player associated with one of the most brash, outspoken teams in modern history on a day that embodies gratitude and humility. Howard was those things at 18, but he was also always “the adult in the room.”
