Natasha Howard, 23, is a TPS Proud graduate of Waite High School (Class of 2010) who is now a professional basketball player with the Indiana Fever.

She was drafted in 2014 by the Fever of the WNBA (after an outstanding career with Florida State University, where she finished sixth in the NCAA for field goals) and has quickly made her mark.

Natasha, a 6-foot-3 forward, who was the top draft pick by the Fever in 2014, made an early impression as a WNBA newcomer last year, blocking six shots in the opener and tying the league record for a rookie debut.

She has proved so popular in her adopted town of Indianapolis that the Fever launched a social media campaign to get her invited to the All Star game on July 25. Natasha didn't make it this year but we have no doubt she'll play in an All Star game at one point in her career. Meanwhile, we are TPS Proud of this outstanding alum.
