Texans donate shoes, cleats to area schools


Okoye was one of several Texans to donate athletic shoes and cleats to local children in Houston.

Several Houston Texans players have donated athletic shoes and cleats to the Touchdown Club of Houston. The shoes were then donated to local Houston Independent School District schools.

Defensive tackle Amobi Okoye donated several pairs of cleats to the Touchdown Club of Houston, who in turn selected local HISD schools to receive the shoes. Quarterback Matt Schaub, linebacker Morlon Greenwood and linebacker Danny Clark are also among the players that donated shoes at the end of the regular season.

"The Texans already mean a lot to the area, but this community-service project of putting cleats into needy kids' hands for years to come cements the relationship between the pro and amateur athletes in Greater Houston," said Touchdown Club Executive Director Neal Farmer. "This can do nothing but bind tighter the tie that the Texans have in Houston to Houstonians."

Around 200 pairs of shoes and cleats were collected and donated. Texans staff members also stepped in and donated unused shoes to their area high schools.
