Texans love their new letterman jackets

Posted by Nick Scurfield on December 8, 2012 – 12:14 pm

Every Texans player got a custom-made, personalized team letterman jacket on Friday, an idea spawned by nose tackle Shaun Cody and carried out by Cody, outside linebacker Connor Barwin and Texans director of equipment services Jay Brunetti.

We put up the story behind the jackets and a video about them on Friday. Here’s what Barwin and some of his teammates said about them:

Barwin: “Cody was the inspiration. It was Shaun Cody’s idea, and I obviously right away thought it was a great idea and then me and him kind of got together and figured out a way to make it happen with J-Bird, our equipment guy. He got in touch with a local varsity letterman jacket company. We needed them by this game in New England because this is maybe our only cold game, so it’s perfect for this week to wear on the road.

“They turned out perfect. There was a lot of discussion what kind of color combo we would make, and we went with the navy on navy and it turned out perfect. I think it shows the kind of team we are. Nobody’s got their name on it. it definitely shows what kind of team we are. I think it could be a future tradition with this Houston Texans organization.”

DE Antonio Smith: “The jackets is awesome. They are so clean, when you put ‘em on, it makes you look debonair. Smooth, kind of like. I think it’s one of Connor’s best ideas. Almost ninja-like.”

“Shaun, I think, had the idea first, and then Connor kind of like – they both… they’re like a team. They’re almost one. They do everything together. Pretty unique couple guys, man.”

DE J.J. Watt: “I think this is really cool. I think it shows a lot about our team and the chemistry that we have, and the guys in this locker room really care about each other and I think these jackets are a great way to signify that. We’re really proud to have ‘em, and we’re excited to wear ‘em.”

RB Arian Foster: “I like it man, I do. I never had a letterman’s jacket. I didn’t get one in high school. I think I had one in college but it just never fit, so I never wore it, so this will be my first official letterman’s jacket.”

“I think it was Shaun Cody and Connor Barwin, between one of those two interesting fellas. They had the idea to have letterman’s jackets, and I thought it was funny. I think it just shows team camaraderie. (It’s a) funny little thing.”

QB Matt Schaub: “I think they’re awesome. I think it’s a really good idea that Connor and Shaun came up with as far as camaraderie amongst the guys and feeling a brotherhood. I think it’s really cool that they came up with that idea, and then we followed through and did it. All the guys were on board with it. It’s a pretty neat deal.

“I think they look great. Hopefully, this weather cools off to where it feels a little more comfortable to wear it here in Houston, but I think they look great.”

TE Owen Daniels: “The whole letter jacket thing is pretty sweet. It’s kind of like a team unity thing. We’ll be wearing ‘em together. Kind of brings us back to the good ol’ high school days and brings back memories of playing back then, so we’re gonna have fun with it, man. They did a great job with the jackets. They look unbelievable, so we’re gonna have fun wearing ‘em.”

RB Justin Forsett: “I love the jackets. I love it. I can’t wait to get am outfit together and bring it here, wear it and let everybody see my style like it was high school when you show off your letterman jacket in high school when you sit, post up on the corner somewhere, at the cafeteria. It brings back some memories, so I love letterman jackets. Nice swag.”
