The Houston Texans mascot, TORO, has won NFL Mascot of the Year.

It looks like this is indeed TORO’s time (see what I did there?). TORO, the Houston Texans mascot has won the Mascot of the Year award for 2021. In a summit of all 26 mascots, TORO was victorious and will get to wear a celebratory patch on his jersey throughout the 2021 NFL season.

Credited with finding unique ways to benefit the community and help make Houston-are children’s lives better were just some of the reasons he won the award.  A celebration for TORO and his efforts will be held during the Houston Texans-Los Angeles Rams matchup on Halloween this year (Sunday, October 31st).

Take a look at the fantastic photoshoot TORO had with the trophy below.

TORO looks incredibly happy in these photos and shout-out to the Texans social media team for creating such an awesome photoshoot. While yes this is kind of trivial for Texans fans and it doesn’t make a difference on the field, it’s nice to know that their mascot is making a difference in the lives of others in a positive way.

This franchise needs all the positive vibes it can get, and this is just a small victory.  It’s kind of a surprise win as Jaxson de Ville of the Jaguars and K.C. Wolf of the Chiefs are always the top-of-mind mascots in the NFL. Now the league will have to put TORO alongside those two with the hardware he brought home.

The Jets, Packers, Chargers, Giants, and the Football Team all do not have a mascot. There’s another feather in your NFL trivia cap. Congratulations to TORO for all the hard work he’s done over the past year. Now go and enjoy that trophy and celebrate!
