The Houston area remains proudly on its feet, with its communities stronger than ever, despite Hurricane Harvey’s best efforts to bring the Texas city to its knees earlier this month.

 

People from all over the United States have contributed to recovery efforts, but nobody knows the heartache and loss associated with a natural disaster on this scale better than those who are living it. That’s why a much-needed gift from the NFL’s Houston Texans meant so much to the Kingwood High School Varsity Football Team, who reportedly lost 90% of their equipment in the flooding.

 

According to Facebook, the Texans recently surprised the Kingwood High School Varsity Football Team with 300 pairs of cleats and 100 footballs. Texans nose tackle D.J. Reader #98 and center Nick Martin #66 were on hand to pass out the equipment to the thrilled players at the end of practice at Turner Stadium on Tuesday.

AMAZING! The Houston Texans showed up at KHS football practice this morning with all new equipment for the team! #houstontexans #kingwoodstrong

The Texans have come through big time for their hometown in the wake of Harvey, but nobody can top defensive end J.J. Watts’ fundraising campaign that has raked in more than $37 million for flood relief efforts. No matter the outcome this NFL season, the Texans are big winners in our book.
