As a dominant lefthander for the Seahawks in the early 1960’s, Lou Howard played a key role as Wilmington College dominated the national junior college baseball scene.
    With Howard in the rotation, the Seahawks won the National Junior College Baseball Championship in 1961 and finished second in 1962. He went 5-1 and earned second-team All-American honors after the 1961 campaign and compiled a 4-3 mark and .312 batting average in 1962.
    Howard continued to succeed after transferring to Wake Forest. A two-time first-team All-Atlantic Coast Conference selection, he amassed an 18-6 career record and 2.62 career earned run average with the Demon Deacons. During Howard’s stay, WFU posted 28-11 and 23-7 records on the diamond.
    Howard played briefly in the Pittsburgh Pirates organization before embarking on a teaching career. He built a 225-25 record in 25 seasons at Roland-Grise Junior High School in Wilmington and closed out his career with a five-year stint as pitching coach at Hoggard High School.
