Announced earlier today was the news that Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt and WR Andre Johnson will be co-Grand Marshals of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo (HLSR) Parade.
HLSR president, Skip Wagner, stated:
There is no better way to celebrate the kickoff of the Show than to have two of Houston’s very own star athletes leading the way…The show and the Texans share a very special relationship, and to have Andre and J.J. start the parade is definitely a testament to that partnership and each organization’s devotion to the city.
This is a great honor for the two Texans players who are anchors for the team. The team is coming off of its best record in franchise history and looks to push into the playoffs again next season.
The parade is in downtown Houston at 10a.m. on the 25th.
