In just over a year's time, the Texans have strengthened their bond with Mexico.
Over the weekend, Texans Ambassadors Wade Smith and J.J. Moses traveled to Monterrey with the Houston Texans Cheerleaders and TORO. The group spent three days in the Northern Mexican city, conducting a few youth camps, signing autographs, going on a media blitz and taking in the sights of the historic city.
The outreach trip comes about six months after the Week 11 contest with the Raiders in Mexico City.
A year ago in early June, outside linebacker Whitney Mercilus visited Mexico City for a few days, as he spearheaded a youth camp of his own, and also met with various media outlets.
In between then and now, the Texans radio network expanded south of the border. Now Texans games can be heard in Spanish in the cities of Juarez, Mexico City, Guadalajara and Monterrey.
Now, more and more can truly say the phrase "#SomosTexans".
