Athletic achievement is not something that happens overnight. Success is often cultivated through years of hard work and growth, many times beginning at a very young age. It is in that light, that we are taking a look back at how it all began for some of Howard County’s current athletes, coaches and administrators. The photos on the left are the individuals early in their athletic careers, while the photos on the right are them now. If you or someone you know would like to be featured in the gallery, submit then-and-now photos to email@example.com.
