Since 2014, Houston Methodist, GE and the Houston Texans have joined forces to make football safer through the Play Safe platform.
Play Safe Programs
Houston Texans, Houston Methodist, and GE hosted the 2020 Virtual Play Safe Clinic for viewers to learn the latest in health & safety live on www.HoustonTexans.com. Hundreds of viewers were able to participate in trivia contests for autographed prizes, had the opportunity to ask Houston Texans cornerback, Bradley Roby, a question, and heard from the top experts in football safety.
This year, the Texans, Houston Methodist, and GE hosted the Play Safe Sports Medicine Summit at the Houston Methodist Training Center. The summit was designed for certified athletic trainers working with Houston-area schools, including the Texans medical staff and physicians from Houston Methodist. The athletic trainers participated in lecture-style instruction, as well as interactive demonstrations. The Houston Methodist Outreach Athletic Training Program reaches more than 300 Houston-area schools and more than 125,000 student-athletes. The NFL Foundation and the Texans made a $25,000 donation to the program to support the placement of certified athletic trainers in underserved schools in the Houston area.
In partnership with Houston Methodist and GE, the Texans host the Play Safe Most Valuable Moms program. Through an online nomination process, eight moms were selected prior to last season to be representatives for the platform, chosen for their passion for youth football and commitment to improving player safety. As part of this program, each mom received tickets to one Texans home game, an on-field experience with her child, a Texans jersey, and recognition at the Moms Clinic.
