TORO wins Best Stunt award at NFL Mascot Summit

TORO is a winner.


The Texans mascot recently took home the 'Stunt of the Year' award at the NFL Mascots Summit in Indianapolis.

In the Wild Card Playoff game at NRG Stadium last January, TORO reverse-rappelled from the field/stands to the catwalk high above the crowd. Christian Smith and Nick Messing helped rig the stunt, and in all, eight people were involved in the acrobatics. One was on the ground with TORO, one met him at the top, and six helped pull TORO all the way up to the catwalk.

TORO recently won the 'Stunt of the Year' award at the annual NFL Mascot Summit.

TORO defeated entries submitted by T-Rac of the Titans, Jaxson DeVille from the Jaguars, KC Wolf of the Chiefs, Sourdough Sam from the 49ers and Freddie Falcon of Atlanta.

TORO accepted the award before the NFL Mascot game on July 15th at Carmel High School in Indiana.

The goal in creating the awards at the summit was to encourage healthy competition among the mascots around the League.

When reached for comment, TORO gestured his arms and bullhead wildly.

The best mascot in the land, TORO, represented the Texans at the 2016 Pro Bowl in Aloha Stadium.
