+ Tim Howard has Key roots
Residents of Fairway Bay knew about Tim Howard long before he became a household name: His grandparents, the late Paul and Eva Fekete, frequently bragged about their star soccer player grandson.
Howard’s mother, Esther Howard, 64, who lived at the family’s Fairway Bay unit from 2011 until earlier this year and now lives in Sarasota, said her son visited them frequently as a child and spent a summer on the Key, training at the IMG Academy in Bradenton.
Howard traveled to Brazil to watch her son play in the FIFA World Cup.
“I was just blown away by the way he had played,” she told the Longboat Observer. “It was beyond anything that I had ever experienced.”
