HOWARD OFFIT, M.S.B, M.B.A
ENTREPRENEUR, REAL ESTATE DEVELOPMENT/INVESTMENTS/INSURANCE
Howard has a long history of building successful businesses in a wide range of industries. He has a passion for helping student-athletes maximize their potential. He co-founded Level 2 Sports, which launched the Under Armour Underclassman Games. Level 2 Sports also launched the National Lacrosse Classic which showcased state lacrosse teams in competition, developed club programs, and introduced participants to the value of sports psychology, nutrition, and leadership training. Collectively, these events brought over 30,000 student-athletes together, 8,000 of which continued on to play at the collegiate level.
As a player, Howard won three NCAA D-1 Lacrosse National Championships at Johns Hopkins University. He continued his success by winning three straight Club Championships and was a member of the USA Indoor Box Lacrosse Team.
Howard then spent 11 years coaching at the high school level before moving into the college ranks where he served as an assistant coach for UMBC, Johns Hopkins, and Georgetown University. His focus on “process versus results” hit very close to home with both of his children: His son competed in four “final fours” and won two NCAA D-1 Lacrosse National Championships while his daughter won four NCAA Division 1 league championships.
