Nathan was hospitalized earlier this month when his heart stopped twice causing him to collapse and was transported to OSF St. Francis where he was listed under critical condition.

Howard was a 4-year starting guard at Peoria Manual, the 1991 winner of Mr. Basketball Illinois and named to the first all-tournament team.
