Future journalists

A group of high school students who serve as their school's newspaper and yearbook editors spent their Saturday afternoon scooping the Texans during the team's rookie mini-camp.

The students were invited to the Texans practice facility to first hear from local sports reporters about breaking into the sports writing and broadcast industries. Houston Chronicle beat writer Carlton Thompson, ABC affiliate KTRK's on-air personality Bob Slovak and Fox affiliate KRIV's Matt Sampsell fielded questions from the students about their profession.

Texans general manager Charley Casserly and Texans owner Robert McNair then held a press conference where they were quizzed about the Texans organization. The question-and-answer session served as a background for stories the students will compose for their school publications and web sites. 

When the press conference wrapped up, the group headed outside to view the Texans' rookies and first-year players during their afternoon practice session. After the conclusion of practice, the students were able to interview first-round draft pick, cornerback Dunta Robinson, for their features on the Texans organization.
