The Houston Texans organization is showing its support for Uvalde High School following the tragic mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas back in May.

A number of Texans players and coaches took to Good Morning America on Friday to announce that they would be wearing a message on their helmets reading “Uvalde strong” for their season-opening game against the Indianapolis Colts.

“We’re actually going to be representing you guys in our first game with this “Uvalde strong,” said Texans linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill. “So you guys will be with us, and we’re with you through everything. Words can’t even describe what you guys have been through. We can only try and empathize for you guys and be there for you guys. What you guys are doing in this city is amazing.”

That was not all the Texans did to honor Uvalde.  The team also announced that it would be providing the Uvalde high school varsity football team with all new Nike equipment for their upcoming football season.

A clip from Good Morning America showed players from the team showing off the new equipment given to them, and they certainly seem to love the new look uniforms for their upcoming season.

This unfortunate tragedy in Uvalde that caused the loss of 21 innocent lives clearly hit the community of Texas hard, and it is great to see the Texans organization coming out to support the community in wake of this difficult time.

The Texans organization has been supporting the cause from the very start, raising $200,000 to the Robb School Memorial Fund in wake of the shooting when it occurred, but it perhaps means even more for players and coaches to come out in person to support the Uvalde community.
