The Houston Texans may be our rivals in today’s AFC wild-card game, but I think we can all agree that this is a good deed. Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins is donating the check he receives from today’s game to the family of a 7-year-old girl who was killed in a drive-by shooting. Hopkins shared this tweet earlier this week:
When I see Jazmine Barnes’ face, I see my own daughter. I’m pledging my playoff check this week to help her family with funeral costs and to support @shaunking @SherriffED_HCSO @SylvesterTurner in bringing this man to justice. On Saturday, I will be playing in your honor, Jazmine pic.twitter.com/oCRYSgfGO9
