Jumal Rolle attends Boys & Girls Club Holiday Party


Texans cornerback Jumal Rolle spread some cheer at the Texans' annual Boys & Girls Club Holiday Party at Finnigan Park on Tuesday. One hundred kids from the Club enjoyed dinner catered by Pappas, took photos with Santa TORO, decorated their own holiday cookies and made Christmas ornaments.

"It's amazing just see the smiles on the kids' faces," Rolle said after visiting with each of the children. "Just to have a bunch of kids together having fun and celebrating the event of Christmas is awesome."

For many of the Boys & Girls Club members, this was the first time they had interacted with an NFL player. Naturally, they had much to say to Rolle, who leads the team in interceptions.

"They love J.J. Watt, they love Andre Johnson," Rolle said, laughing. "They want to know what number I am and they want to see me on TV Sunday, so I'm gonna try to do the best I can for them."

Each child received a gift provided by JetCo Delivery, which was wrapped by Texans staff on Monday. As for what's on Rolle's Christmas list, he only wants quality time with loved ones.

"I love family, I'm a family guy, so I just want all my family to be around," he said. "My son's coming up next week so we'll get to enjoy Christmas together. He'll be at the Ravens game, so we'll enjoy some time together."
