New York Giants great and NFL analyst Michael Strahan attended this year’s 2nd annual Touchdown for TEACH dinner that took place on November 10th at the River Oaks Country Club in the Houston area. The 6 foot 5 Defensive End player joined his friend Spence Tillman on stage to entertain the audience for more than a half an hour answering questions and partaking in some good old fashioned banter. It was a sold out event for the second time in a row, and last year the TEACH foundation was able to benefit from the $600,000 that were raised for them to help promote a safe environment to educate kids. Before the speaking event, several fans had the opportunity to take selfies with Strahan, who seemed to have a great time doing so.
The Houston native didn’t even start to play football until his senior year of high school, yet he still managed to get a sports scholarship offer at Texas Southern University. Strahan wasn’t the first in his family to make a name for himself on the collegiate team as he also had a uncle who played the same position for the Tigers. By his junior year at the university, he was showing his immense amount of talent for football and was becoming a real prospect for the NFL. Strahan entered the 1993 NFL Draft and was selected in the second round by the New York Giants, with whom he played with for 14 years.
The seven-time Pro Bowl player attended Houston’s second annual Touchdown for Teach dinner event at the River Oaks Country Club earlier this month. The event sold out before it even began, and Strahan was a big hit with the audience.
