The Texas Southern University football team is gearing up to move into new lockers inside the team’s field house. The renovation, which features enhanced ventilation and new flooring in both the locker room and player’s lounge, is courtesy of the team’s partnership with the Houston Texans.

“We’re excited and thankful for the partnership with the Texans and the McNair family for providing the locker room renovations for our student-athletes,” said Vice President for Intercollegiate Athletics Dr. Kevin Granger. “It’s always a big day for us at TSU when we are able to provide our players with a first-class experience. We look forward to the ways in which experience will be enhanced further in the future through the investment the team has made in our student-athletes.”

As part of the partnership that was announced in April, the Texans also donated their artificial playing surface from NRG Stadium. In addition, the team is awarding scholarships to five female student-athletes for each year of the partnership. The Texans are also creating opportunities and programming that will provide access to professional development, internships and mentoring for TSU students, faculty, staff and athletics leadership. For more on the partnership, click here
