The TD Club assists area high schools through community-service projects. The Club has awarded approximately $180,000 in scholarships to more than 275 high schoolers in Greater Houston in the past 16 years, and have given out approximately $185,000 in weights and weight equipment to 38 Greater Houston high schools in the past 14 years.
The high schools which received weights were Booker T. Washington, Forest Brook, Reagan, Smiley and Houston Sterling in 2002; Kashmere, Madison, Scarborough, Wheatley and Worthing in 2003; Milby, Northbrook and Westbury in 2004; Furr, Sharpstown and Houston Austin in 2005; Willowridge, Jones, Sam Houston, Aldine and Yates in 2006; Eisenhower, Houston Lamar, Pasadena and Scarborough (again) in 2007; in 2008, Dulles, Furr (again) South Houston and Spring Woods; in 2009, Booker T. Washington (again), Hightower, Spring and Waltrip; in 2010, Alief Hastings and Jeff Davis; in 2011, Alief Elsik, Reagan (again) and Bellaire; in 2012, Humble, Houston Lee, and Madison (again); and in 2013, Hightower (again), La Marque and Lutheran North; Westbury Christian in 2014; and Aldine (again), Madison (again) and Scarborough (again) in 2015.
The TD Club has teamed up with the Houston Texans' Sean Washington, the team's director of player development, to distribute excess cleats and tennis shoes to high schools in the area.
The Texans players receive multiple shoes that they cannot use each season, and the TD Club funnels those shoes to needy high schools. So far, schools assisted are in HISD, Fort Bend ISD, Lamar Consolidated ISD, Anahuac, C.E. King, Goose Creek ISD, Bridge City, Pasadena ISD, Stafford and Spring Branch schools Northbrook and Spring Woods.
We helped start the Senior Showcase in 2009 with the Houston Texans and with Houston ISD's Phil Camp and Coby Rhoden, during which more than 700 high school kids have been offered almost $70 million in scholarships and grants from NAIA and NCAA Division II and NCAA Division III schools. The event takes place in the Methodist Training Facility on the Texans campus.
