Each year, the Texans host the annual Liberty White Out game honoring first responders. All fans are encouraged to wear white and first responders are honored throughout the game as Homefield Advantage Captains, Coin Toss Captains, flag holders, and more. During the game, the Texans honor one first responder for outstanding bravery with the Star of Courage award. This game serves as a tribute to all of Houston’s first responders for their dedication to our community and is way for the Texans to say “thank you” for all they do. 

Each year at the Liberty White Out game, the Texans recognize one outstanding first responder based on peer nomination for showing bravery and commitment to Houston. This year, for the first time since the award’s inception, a husband and wife were honored: Houston Police Department senior officers Steven and Melanie Hamala. Both were instrumental in stopping an active-shooter situation and saving lives. In support of the brave men and women who protect our community, a $10,000 donation was made in their names to the 100 Club of Houston, an organization that supports the dependents of fallen firefighters and law enforcement officials. 

Leading up to the Liberty White Out Game, the Texans, Ambassador J.J. Moses, and linebacker John Simon hosted an event honoring the Harris County Sheriff’s Office and the nonprofit K9s4Cops for their commitment to the community. K9s4Cops provides trained canines to law enforcement agencies across the country and internationally. Since the partnership began in 2011, nearly 20 dogs have been donated to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office. At the event, Simon surprised the officers with lunch and a special invitation to attend the Liberty White Out game, which honored first responders.
