Breakfast: Hopkins hits 'First Shot' for charity


Back in October, DeAndre Hopkins was the first celebrity to take (and make) the 'First Shot' for charity, a program in which the Rockets donate $5,000 for a made free throw and $1,000 for a miss.

On Wednesday night, the wide receiver stepped up to the charity stripe once again and knocked it down.

Hopkins isn't the only Texans player to take the first shot, as Whitney Mercilus (January), Deshaun Watson (April) and Tyrann Mathieu (April) have also participated.

Not only is Hopkins 2-for-2, but the team is a combined 4-for-5. That's an impressive 80 percent from the line.
