Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson and defensive end J.J. Watt will be the grand marshals of the upcoming Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo Downtown Parade, as reported by the Houston Chronicle.
The parade is on Saturday, Feb. 25, at 10 a.m.
“We are thrilled to have Andre and J.J. represent the Texans in the Rodeo Parade,” Texans president Jamey Rootes said. “The Rodeo has been a great partner since before we even started playing in 2002, and to have two of our stars lead the parade is truly an honor and a great way to cap off a fantastic season for us.”
The Texans’ 2011 season was the best in franchise history, with the team posting a 10-6 record in the regular season and winning the AFC South title. The 2012 Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo features a series of nightly concerts at Reliant Stadium from Feb. 28-March 18.
“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,” RodeoHouston president Skip Wagner said. “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.”
