Josh Huff

Houston Texans defensive linemen Carlos Watkins, D.J. Reader and former Nimitz High standout Josh Huff pose with Mendel Elementary School students who received backpacks filled with school supplies during an event on Tuesday, Oct. 3 at Greenspoint Elementary School.

In a continuing effort to assist those impacted by Hurricane Harvey, Huff, Reader and Watkins teamed up with the Houston Food Bank and a number of companies to provide backpacks and school supplies to Mendel Elementary students who were displaced by Hurricane Harvey. Mendel students now attend Greenspoint Elementary due to damages sustained at Mendel during the storm.

The trio handed out 350 backpacks to Mendel and Greenspoint Elementary students filled with pens, pencils, notebooks, folders, markers, crayons and highlighters, all donated by the following companies: Everest Bag, CVS Health, Denik, Mattel, New Era and Verizon Digital Media Services. Huff played collegiately at the University of Oregon and in the NFL with the Philadelphia Eagles and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He is currently a free agent.
