Maurice and the Houston Texans — playing together

I had to travel to Houston to take part in the Houston Tackles Autism campaign, which featured Houston Texans players Matt Schaub and Ahman Green, and the team at Reliant Energy. The event took place in front of an assembly of children at Thompson Elementary School.

It was the debut of their coloring book titled Playing Together: Tips from the Pros, which features Matt, Ahman, and some other characters from the Houston Texans organization. In this book, some of Houston’s favorite sport stars share tips to help kids look past disabilities and understand that kids with disabilities are just kids.

People in Houston can visit Papa John’s locations to obtain a book, or make a donation at www.houstontacklesautism.com to receive a downloadable version of some of the pages  (coming in the next week or so!).

Afterwards, Matt and Ahman were featured on ESPNEWS The Hot List where they discussed the campaign.

I enjoyed meeting these football players the first time I was in Houston but I enjoyed it even more meeting them the second time around, along with a group of school children, because what they do for many children is inspire hope.

    Thank you, Jeanne, for your great words of encouragement. The coloring book is the greatest thing for the children; it encourages them to keep on playing together as a team. I really had a great time meeting the children at the school, along with Matt and Ahman. Their contributions to Easter Seals Disability Services are golden, and they are the greatest humanitarians to support, play, and live with many children nationwide.

    Maurice– I have seen the coloring book–it is great! What a nice gift to give to a young child. I am sure you made a terrific impression on all the kids you met. You are a good role model.
