I am thrilled and proud that you were drafted by the Houston Texans. It is so exciting that you will be playing in the town in which I live. As a fellow Clemson Tiger, let me tell you: this city has a LOT of Clemson alums and we are all excited to see a Tiger in a Texans uniform.
With this journey ahead of you, I just want to share some thoughts with you, if you do not mind.
As C.J. Spiller learned, a high profile brings high expectations and demands. C.J. accepted the challenge and gracefully represents himself, his family, the Bills and Clemson.
You have this same challenge. We have faith in you. We know you will succeed on the field and off, which is why we support you 100%.
And, you have some fabulous mentors on the Texans to learn from, such as, oh, I don’t know, a certain wide receiver named Andre Johnson???!!! Take advantage of these opportunities and rock it.
Know that you are joining an exciting and talented Texans team that is on the verge of exploding within the NFL and that has extremely loyal fans. (Sound familiar?)
The Tiger’s roar is definitely echoing…we look forward to seeing you play as a Texan.
