Howes attended Principia College and Capital University and was an All-American football player and decathlete. He is the former NCAA record holder for the most receiving yards in a single game, having caught 17 passes for 418 yards in a 2002 game against Martin Luther College. He left college early to pursue professional football. However, two games into his first Arena League season he collided with a wall while diving to make a catch and snapped his wrist. He played the rest of the season with a broken wrist, and after the last game he underwent corrective surgery that ended his football career.

In 2012, Howes moved to New York City to play team handball for the amateur New York Team Handball Club. He is currently in the selection pool for the USA Men's National team.

In August 2013 signed by the Spanish handball team Ademar León as a player to test for 15 days.

He also started Sports Executives Association, a monthly membership website for sports executives, and Inspired Marketing, which creates educational materials based on social media.
