INCREDIBLE STORIES OF THE 2006 ALL-AMERICAN BOWL GAME!
By Super Scout Max Emfinger

In the 2006 All-American Bowl Game Classic, I had 113 players and I was able to get some really great players into that game. Many of them had already committed to play for teams like Arkansas, Alabama, TexasLSU, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Florida, TCU, and Florida State. Those players made up about 60% of the total players and those players helped the other 40% of the players to receive a scholarship.

In that 2006 AABG, we had such great college stars as OT Trent Williams (Oklahoma);  DE Lamarr Houston (Texas); QB Andy Dalton (TCU); WR Damian Williams (Arkansas and USC); LB Brian Duncan (Texas Tech); DE Wayne Daniels (TCU); RB Charles Scott (LSU); RB Vondrell McGee (Texas); WR Chris Mitchell (LSU); SS Mister Alexander (FSU); LB Lawrence Wilson (Connecticut); TE Preston Dial (Alabama); WR London Crawford (Arkansas); CB Ramon Broadway (Arkansas); WR Michael McCoy (Alabama); RB Cordera Eason (Ole Miss); RB Derrick Davis (Ole Miss); DT Wes Tunuufi Sauvao (Central Florida): LB Brian Duncan (Texas Tech); LB Martez Smith (Southern Miss; and OC Ryan McMahan (FSU).

As you can see, there were some really Special Players in that 2006 All-American Bowl Game Classic, but it turned out that Four of those players became Very Special Players that had sensational college careers and were Drafted in the First three Rounds of the NFL Draft. This is still the greatest group of Football Players to ever play in one of our All-American Bowl Game Classics.

Two of these Super-Stars, DE Lamarr Houston and OT Trent Williams, were unbelievable at the 2010 NFL Scouting Combine and consequently were Drafted in the First Two Rounds of the 2010 NFL Draft. The two Super Combine Freaks were also the First two players in History to record a 2,000 MEARS RATING at a Super Scouting Combine. WR Damian Williams was also Drafted #3 in the 2010 NFL Draft by the Tennessee Titans; while QB Andy Dalton was Drafted #2 in the 2011 NFL Draft by the Cincinnati Bengals, but they did not record a 2,000 MEARS RATING.  

In the 2011, 2012, and 2013 NFL Scouting Combines, we found out that the players are really getting Bigger, Stronger, and Faster. In the 2010 NFL Scouting Combine, we had four players to reach the 2,000 MEARS Plateau as OT Trent Williams (2,025) of Oklahoma; FS Taylor Mays (2,005) of USC; DT Lamarr Houston (2,005) of Texas; and RB Ben Tate (2,000) of Auburn made that Plateau.

Then, in the 2011 NFL Scouting Combine, eight players recorded a 2,000 MEARS RATING, including QB Cam Newton (2,070) of Auburn; QB Jake Locker (2,057) of Washington; CB Patrick Peterson (2,048) of LSU; LB Martez Wilson (2,030) of Illinois; LB Von Miller (2,012) of Texas A&M; DT Cameron Jordan (2,009) of California; DE J.J. Watt (2,005) of Wisconsin; and WR Jon Baldwin (2,001) of Pittsburgh.

And then in the 2012 NFL Scouting Combine, six players recorded a 2,000 MEARS RATING, including QB Robert Griffin (2,226) of Baylor; DE Nick Perry (2,160) of USC; LB Luke Kuechly (2,009) of Boston College; QB Andrew Luck (2,008) of Stanford; WR Greg Childs (2,003) of Arkansas; and CB Josh Robinson (2,003) of Central Florida.

And finally, an incredible 21 College Football Players reached that 2,000 Plateau in the most recent 2013 NFL Scouting Combine, just before the 2013 NFL Draft. The results of those 21 players are as follows.

As you can see in this analysis, there were four players in the 2010 NFL Scouting Combine; eight players in the 2011 NFL Scouting Combine; six players in the 2012 NFL Scouting Combine and now we have an unbelievable 21 players in 2013 NFL Scouting Combine who made the Elite 2,000 MEARS RATINGS.

Lamarr Houston #33 signed with The University of Texas; and then played in the 2010 BCS National Championship along with teammate and RB Vondrell McGee against Alabama and TE Preston Dial and 2007 AABG, CB Kareem Jackson. My 2010 All-American Bowl Game Players, watched this 2010 BCS National Championship Game in the Hotel, just before the 2010 All-American Bowl Game Classic.

Houston was a versatile player and I had planned to use him as a Tight End, but he was so dominating on Defense, he played most of the game at Defensive End. He also played Tight End, but he was used mostly as a blocking TE as Charles Scott and Vondrell McGee rushed for over 200-yards. Houston was projected as a #1 or #2 Round Draft Choice and then was Drafted #2 and #44 Overall in the 2010 NFL Draft by the Oakland Raiders. I thought that Houston was a Real Steal for the Raiders and I have, of course, been proved right.

I will never forget my first meeting with Lamarr Houston at a 2005 TCU NIKE Summer Camp in Fort Worth. He was a Super Combine Freak and I asked him if he would be interested in playing in my 2006 All-American Bowl Game Classic, and he said that definitely was interested. Then later, I will never forget going to the Greyhound Bus Station in Shreveport to pick-up Houston, who had just come-in from  Colorado Springs Doherty High School in Colorado. I also took him back to the Greyhound Bus Station after the game.

Trent Williams played in the 2006 All-American Bowl Game Classic,  and  played his high school football at Longview, Texas. Williams had around 30 scholarship offers when he got to our first practice in 2006. He played Left Tackle in our game and Teamed with Houston on a lot of Double-Team Blocking Assignments to clear paths for Scott and McGee. Fullback Brandon Newsome of Dry Prong Grant, Louisiana was also a devastating lead blocker for Scott and McGee.

Trent Williams #71 was an unbelievable Left Tackle at Longview. I watched him play in two highlight game films and he was completely dominating. I wanted him in my All-American Bowl Game Classic, but he had so many scholarship offers, I didn’t think I could get him, but then the US Army All-American Game overlooked him and I was able to get him with his Longview Super Running Back Teammate Vondrell McGee

Williams signed with The University of Oklahoma and then started at Right Offensive Tackle in his last six games as a True Freshman in 2006. After making Freshman All-American, Williams started his Sophomore and Junior seasons at Right Offensive Tackle before moving to Left Offensive Tackle as a Senior in 2009. After running a 4.88 in the Forty while weighing 320-Pounds and ran an amazing 4.63 in the Pro-Shuttle, Williams was Rated as the #1 Offensive Lineman in the 2010 NFL Draft and consequently was a #1 Round Draft Choice and #4 Overall in that 2010 NFL Draft by the Washington Redskins

Quarterback Andy Dalton #14 injured his thumb in the 2005 Texas 5A State Championship Game and could not play in the 2006 All-American Bowl Game, but he was still on the West Team sideline with his West Team TeammatesDalton was injured and could not play in the 2006 AABG, but he Started for four years and led the TCU Horned Frogs to an undefeated 2009 and 2010 seasons. Dalton also became a #2 Round Draft Choice and #35 Overall in the 2011 NFL Draft by the Cincinnati Bengals.

Dalton had an incredible career at TCU and finished ninth in the Heisman Trophy, including four First-Place Votes. Dalton was a 2010 Mountain West Conference Offensive Player of the Year and a Unanimous All-Mountain West Conference First Team Selection and he played in the Senior Bowl. Dalton had an amazing 42-7 TCU Career Record as a starting Quarterback and broke every TCU Quarterback Record, including the 29 wins of Legendary Hall-of-Fame Quarterback Sammy Baugh.

Dalton was the 2010 Rose Bowl Offensive Most Valuable Player after completing 15-of-23 passes for 219-yards and a touchdown while rushing for 28 more yards and a Touchdown to lead TCU to a 21-19 victory over #5 Wisconsin, which was his third Bowl Game Victory and Bowl Game MVP as a Starting Quarterback.  Dalton also won the MVP Game Award in the 2007 Texas Bowl and the 2008 Poinsetta Bowl

Damian Williams of Springdale, Arkansas was one of the Top Wide Receivers in the Country in 2005 and I had him rated as one of the Top Three in the Country. I had watched him and his Springdale 7on7 Team play in the Summer 2005 Hoover National 7on7 Championship and I became friends with him and his Dad. I also became Friends with his Quarterback Mitch Mustang, who was a Parade All-American and the #1 Quarterback in the Country. Williams should have been a Parade All-American, but was overlooked in favor of Mustang.

I invited WR Damian Williams, QB Mitch Mustang, TE Ben Cleveland, and Super Athlete Matt Clinkscales to play in the 2006 All-American Bowl Game Classic. Cleveland and Clinkscales accepted my invitation, but Williams and Mustang were hoping to get invitations to play in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl Game

Since I already had Cleveland and Clinkscales in the Game, I still thought that I could get Williams into the Game. I also wanted Mustang, but he was being told that he would get an invitation to play in the Army Game and he eventually did get the invitation. Williams also wanted to play in the Army Game, but they had already given out all of their Wide Receiver invitations. Then, about a week before we were supposed to meet at the Hotel in Shreveport, I got a call from Mr. Williams, asking me if it was too late for his son to play in my All-American Bowl Game Classic. “Are you crazy? It’s never too late for a player like Damian Williams to get an offer.”

As a Junior at Springdale, Williams grabbed 31 passes for 545-yards and four Touchdowns, but his team, under Super Head Coach Gus Malzahn, was so dominant, they had Ten “Mercy-Rule” wins out of 13 games that they played. Williams also only played in the first half of only eight of those games. Then as a Senior, Williams caught 63 passes for 1,495-yards and a 23.7 yards per catch average. Williams also returned two punts for Touchdowns and one Interception for a Touchdown. This gave Williams 37 Touchdowns for the 5A State Championship Team and he was Voted as the State Championship Game MVP.

Williams came to our AABG Game as a Florida Verbal, but on National Signing Day, he joined Mustang and Cleveland as Arkansas Signees. After Williams and Cleveland were Selected to the 2006 All-SEC Freshman Team, Williams got a Release from the Razorbacks and Signed with Southern Cal. In 2007, Williams Red-Shirted, after transferring to Southern Cal from Arkansas. In 2008, Williams caught 59 passes for 869-yards, a 15-yards per catch average, and nine Touchdowns.

In the 2010 NFL Draft, Williams was Drafted as a Third Round Selection by The Tennessee Titans as their #3 Pick and #77 Overall and was primed to make a considerable impact on the Titans Offense. As a Rookie in 2010, Williams gained valuable experience in all 16 games as he grabbed 16 balls. What makes Williams a Special Wide Receiver a huge and valuable target in the Titans Passing Game is his crisp route-running ability, good speed, and outstanding, soft hands.

Vondrell McGee #2 was the Teammate of Trent Williams at Longview and he was one of the Top Running Backs in the Country as he broke the Longview Touchdown Record with 27 Touchdowns as a Junior. McGee also rushed for 2,039-yards on 206 carries for 9.9 yards per carry average. McGee could run a 4.3 in the Forty and he could score from anywhere on the field. McGee came to our First Practice as a Verbal Committment to The University of Texas and he would become Teammates with Lamarr HoustonMcGee was Academically Ineligible as a Senior, but he recorded an outstanding 4.01 in the Pro-Shuttle at the Texas Pro-Day, but he was not Drafted in the 2011 NFL Draft.

Also in 2006, other outstanding All-American Bowl Game players included WR Bart Johnson of Brownwood, Texas; LB Lawrence Wilson of Tuscaloosa Bryant, Alabama; CB Ramon Broadway and OT Jamarr Thompson of Shreveport Evangel, Louisiana; OC Lon Roberts of Kilgore, Texas; OG Whitley Fehoko of Honolulu Farrington, Hawaii; LB Martez Smith of Jackson Velma Jackson, Mississippi; and DT Wes Tunuufi Sauvao of Leesville, Louisiana all came to our first practice with one or no offers.

In the 2006 AABG, there was a very fast linebacker named Lawrence Wilson from Tuscaloosa Bryant, Alabama. Wilson had just Transferred to Bryant, but had run a 4.42 in the Forty, and I was impressed with him when he picked up a fumbled kickoff and ran it back for a Touchdown. Then in another game, Wilson returned an interception, 100 yards for another score. Wilson had just transferred to that school as a senior and he had no offers.

In late March, about two months after the AABG Game, Wilson signed with the University of Connecticut. After red-shirting as a True Freshman in 2006, Wilson then started 13 games and was selected to the Freshman All-American Team in 2007. Wilson then became their leading tackler for all four years, from 2007-2010Wilson was the Big East leading tackler for two years. Wilson was selected as the First Pick in the #6 Pick and #166 Overall Pick of the 2011 NFL Draft by the Carolina Panthers. Wilson would have been Drafted Higher, but he was battling an injury at the 2011 Scouting Combine and did not put-up great Measurables.

Preston Dial (6-3, 242, 4.7) of Mobile USM Wright, Alabama was a great pass-catching Tight End who caught 17 passes as a junior for 417-yards and a really hefty 24.5 yards per catch average. He actually ran on the 4×100 relay team at 242 pounds. I really liked Dial and he was a really Super Kid. Dial gave up baseball as a junior to run track so he could get faster for Football. Then as a Senior, Dial helped lead his team to the 4A Alabama State Championship and in the process, he was selected as the 4A Lineman of the Year.

Dial #85 got an offer from Alabama and he actually came to our first practice as a Verbal to The Crimson Tide. In 2006, after playing in our All-American Bowl Game Classic, Dial Red-Shirted, but in 2007, he played in 10 games and started against Vanderbilt. In 2008, Dial played in 12 games and then in 2009, he played in all 14 games and started seven of them, including the 2009 BCS National Championship. In the 2009 BCS National Championship Game against Texas and Lamarr Houston and Vondrell McGee, Dial was a key blocker at the pount of attack for both Crimson Tide 100-yard rushers, including Mark Ingram (116-yards) and Trent Richardson (109-yards.

Before his Senior season, Dial had already played in 38 games, including nine starts for the Powerful Crimson Tide. As a Senior in 2010, Dial was a prime target for Quarterback Greg McElroy as he grabbed 25 passes. After his Senior season, Dial joined Alabama Teammates McElroy and Offensive Lineman James Carpenter in the 2011 Under Armour Senior Bowl.

I got to know Ramon Broadway when he played in the State Championship Games in 2003, 2004, and again in 2005. We became great Friends and I also watched him Cover Damian Williams in the 2005 Hoover National 7on7 Championship Games. As a Cover Cornerback, Broadway and Williams really had some great battles with both doing great jobs against each other.

Ramon Broadway was a Super Combine Freak (a great thing) in high school with a 4.27 in the Forty, but he had no offers until Arkansas offered him in late February. Broadway was a rare four-year starter for Shreveport Evangel and he had four kickoffs for a touchdown as a senior. Broadway was a great person and he became a true Friend. I also saw three of those Kickoffs for Touchdowns

With his outstanding Speed, Broadway  became one of the starting cornerbacks for the Arkansas Razorbacks for four years. In the 2010 SEC game against Alabama, Broadway was assigned to Cover WR Julio Jones, one of the top wide receivers in the country for the Crimson Tide. He held Julio Jones to five catches for 55-yards and no touchdowns; but most of all, he kept Jones from completely dominating the game. It was not enough as the #1 Ranked Crimson Tide came from behind and beat the Razorbacks by a 24-20 score. In that 2010 Senior Season, Broadway recorded 48 solo tackles and six pass breakups. In the 2009 Junior Season, Broadway recorded 55 tackles and recovered three fumbles which ranked second in the SEC.

Broadway was battling an ankle injury at the NFL Scouting Combine and he was not able to put-up all of the great Measurables that he was capable of recording. Even with his ankle injury, Broadway did an incredible 41 Vertical Jump and a 4.4 in the Forty. He was signed by the San Diego Chargers as a Free Agent and he has recently Signed with the New Orleans VooDoo in the Arena Football League.

In the 2005 Season, there was a great Linebacker from Baton Rouge Tara, Louisiana, named Brian Duncan, but he was Flying Under the Recruiting Radar, because he had played Defensive Tackle in 2004. As a Defensive Tackle in 2004, Duncan (6-1, 235, 4.6) was a Real Freak as he recorded an incredible 128 tackles, including 78 Solo Tackles. Duncan moved to Middle Linebacker as a Senior, but he was not able to get on any of the Recruiting Lists.

I went to see Duncan play and in that game, he recorded 22 tackles, including four tackles for a loss. I immediately invited him to play in the 2006 All-American Bowl Game Classic, and he immediately accepted. I thought that Duncan could play Linebacker for any team in America, but he still never got on any SEC Recruiting List, or an SEC Offer, but he still came to our first practice as a Verbal to Texas Tech and he later Signed with the Red Raiders on National Signing Day.

Duncan Red-Shirted as a True-Freshman in 2006, and then started for four years. As a Red-Shirt Freshman in 2007, Duncan was a Tackling-Machine as he recorded 69 tackles and made a variety of Freshman All-American Teams. Duncan then led the Red Raiders in tackles in 2008 and 2009 and as a Sophomore, he recorded 94 tackles and two interceptions, while playing Middle Linebacker.

Duncan was a Born Leader and he was not only the best leader on the Texas Tech Football Team, but he also was one of the top Leaders in the Lubbock Community. One of the biggest thrills of his career came in 2008 when the Red Raiders Upset the #1 Ranked Team in the Country, Texas Longhorns, by a 39-33 score. Although Duncan was only a Sophomore, he was already the Defensive Team Leader and after the Upset Victory Over Texas, he was invited to Direct the Texas Tech Goin’ Band as they played the Texas Tech Alma Meter as Red Raider Fans and Students were going Wild. This is still on YouTube.

Martez Smith (6-1, 205, 4.45) was a player that I discovered at an Ole Miss NIKE Camp. I got to the NIKE Camp in Oxford at around Noon and I walked right by Coach Cedric Wilder, his Head Football Coach. “Take a look at my Linebacker,” said Coach Wilder. “His name is Martez Smith and he’s overthere working with the Linebackers.” I watched Smith and he was really outstanding as he ran a 4.45 in the Forty and did a 36 Vertical Jump. Smith was very impressive and I immediately invited him to play in our 2006 All-American Bowl Game Classic. As a Senior, Smith recorded 177 tackles, had 11 Sacks, caused seven fumbles, and had four interceptions.

In 2009, as a Redshirt Junior, Smith started 13 games and had 82 tackles, including 41 solo and 41 assisted tackles. He recovered a fumble and ran it 22-yards for a Touchdown against Central Florida and Wes Tunuufi Sauvao. He also had a career-high 13 tackles against Tulsa and had 10 tackles against Kansas.

On November 17, 2010 a Horrible Tragedy struck the Southern Miss Football Team as three of the Southern Miss Football Players were shot in a Night Club Parking Lot. “Martez Smith is paralyzed right now from the waist down,” said Head Coach Larry Fedora. “We’re hopeful that this may change, but one way or another Martez is going to have a productive life, and we will be there for him either way.”

Most people in the situation like Martez Smith have simple, yet often realistic, goals of standing or walking under their own power. Smith had larger aspirations. “My Goal right now is to get back on the Football Field and into the NFL. I’m going to play; the Lord is Real and He will help me. Some people may express disbelief in such lofty goals, considering the fact he was shot four times, and one bullet severing his spine, but there is no hesitation when the former Southern Miss Super-Star talks about his Football Future.

On December 10, 2010 Martez Smith got a Standing Ovation as his Dad, James Smith, helped him across the stage in his wheelchair during Southern Miss Commencement as he received his College Diploma.

Jamarr Thompson was a teammate of Broadway at Evangel in 2006 and he was a victim of Hurricane Katrina. He relocated from Reserve East St John, LA and it was very difficult for most of the college coaches to keep track of him. Thompson (6-7, 320, 5.2) received six offers at Tuesday practice before the game, including Louisiana Tech, Memphis, and Arkansas. Thompson later signed with Louisiana Tech and became a three-year starter. Broadway and Thompson helped lead Evangel to the 2005 Louisiana 1A State Championship.

“It was like a dream come true for me to play in an All-American Bowl Game like this and show everybody what I can do against other top players,” Thompson said.

Lon Roberts was one of the best center prospects that I saw in the 2005 football season, but he had only one offer to Louisiana Tech when he showed-up for practice. He now has started for the Bulldogs for three years.

Whitley FehokoWhitley Fehoko, a Tongan,was an Incredible Specimen at Offensive Guard and he was the #1 Offensive Lineman prospect in the Hawaiian Islands, but he came to our first practice without an offer. Fehoko averaged seven Pancake Blocks as a junior and eleven Pancake Blocks per game as a senior.  At a summer Super Combine, Fehoko did 42 Reps of 185 on the Bench Press.  After the 2006 All-American Bowl Game Classic, Fehoko was offered by San Diego State and he signed with them and then started for the Aztecs as a True Freshman.

Wes Tunuufi SauvaoWes Tunuufi Sauvao had no offers, but this Big Samoan was a Super Combine Freak at some Super Combines as he ran a 4.9 in the Forty while weighing 298-pounds. Tunuufi Sauvao actually played Tight End in my 2005 7on7 National Championship and he made some incredible catches for a big guy. Then as a senior in 2005, he recorded 18 sacks and 22 tackles for a loss. After the AABG, Tunuufi Sauvao got an offer from Central Florida, and he played for the UCF Knights for four years.

The top offensive lineman for Mississippi State in 2010 was offensive guard Quentin Saulsberry, from Independence, Mississippi, who came to our 2007 All-American Bowl Game Classic without a single scholarship offer. Saulsberry then started 36 consecutive games for the Bulldogs. The Bulldogs top running back in 2010 was Vick Ballard, from Pascagoula, Mississippi, and he came to our 2008 All-American Bowl Game Classic first practice without a single scholarship offer.

Ryan McMahon of Rome Darlington, Georgia was a two-way Super Lineman Freak who had two blocked field goals. When I offered him to play in the AABG, he did not have any offers, but when his film got around, he was offered by about 10 schools. When McMahon came to our AABG, he played defense, but became a Four-Year Starter at Center for the Florida State Seminoles after being selected to the Freshman All-American team as a 2007 Red-Shirt Freshman.

His teammate, SS Mister Alexander of Aldine Eisenhower, Texas also played for the Seminoles for Four Years and he also got to our game with no offers. Alexander recorded an incredible 4.0 in the Pro-Shuttle and a 48-4 in the Triple Jump. Alexander was a senior starter for the Seminoles. Alexander is now with the Houston Texans.

The East Team Defensive Coordinator Ronnie Cottrell knew the importance of a game like this game. Cottrell was the Recruiting Coordinator at Florida State (1989-97) and Alabama (1998-2000) before becoming a High School Head Football coach in Alabama.

Coach Ronnie Cottrell has been regarded as one of the elite college recruiters in the country for many years now, so he knows how important a game like this is and how it serves as an invaluable commodity for College Football Recruiters from all over the country.

“This is an incredible collection of high school athletes,” Cottrell said. “I don’t think there’s another all-star game with this much Division I talent.

“If this game continues to improve and gets better, it has a chance to be the top All-American game in the Country,” said Coach Cottrell. College Coaches are taking notice as there were 117 coaches at the practices on Tuesday and there was over 100 scholarships offered.”

“That’s unheard of, but Max has always come up with great sleeper guys, said Cottrell.”

My mission and goal is to search for that hidden high school football talent that has not been found yet. I then evaluate him and try to help him to get some publicity. In 2003, 2004, 2005. and 2006, I hosted my Annual 7on7 National Championship. My goal was to get great athletes to one area where I could evaluate them and then help them with college coaches. The only drawback was that college coaches wanted to see the hidden gems in a game-type highlight film and so the college coaches suggested to me that I host a real All-American Bowl Game so that they could view these talented players in a highlight film, playing against other talented players. It's noted that the NCAA doesn't allow the college coaches to attend All-American Games or practices and so the Game Film is a great tool for the college coaches. In 2005, I hosted my 1st Annual All-American Bowl Game. In nine games in nine years, my wife and I have helped 549 HS football players to get a scholarship that came to our first Bowl Game practice without a single scholarship offer. This also does not count over 1,000 players who we have helped that did not play in our game, including over 100 players in the 2010 Recruiting Season. My Super Elite Top Gun Camp idealogy, is of course, to get as many Top Football Players to a Top Gun Camp so that all of my coaches and I can evaluate them, rate them, rank them, and promote them. There will always be "Diamonds in the Rough" to be found. My First Annual Max Emfinger's Super Elite Top Gun Camp was in July of 2010. The Camp was amazing and loaded with unknown and known talent. Many of them were invited to play in our 2011 All-American Bowl Game Classic. In 2007, in my 3rd Annual All-American Bowl Game, a player by the name of Kareem Jackson came to our first Monday practice, without a single scholarship offer. Jackson decided to come out early and he became a #1 Draft Choice in the 2010 NFL Draft for the Houston Texans.
