    Paying for a college education is a great way to give Williams another opportunity.

    Way to go, Bobby!

    I remember watching that Texans vs Cowboys game to this day. A sad story his NFL career was just begining. But I am very glad to see he doing well. Well done Bob as well.

    Good to hear about Harry and how it looks like not only has he bounced back from his injury, but has used it to propel his life into a new direction. Kudos to Harry for that.

    Nice to know, even though sometimes we question Bob's Football decisions it's good to know the guy is committed to his players futures.

    Although things like this do happen, you seldom know about them when they do. You usually only see these endings in the movies. Thanks, Wolf, for posting this heart-warming story.

    I was at this game in Dallas and cried slightly when it happen. Did a lot of praying too. He was a good guy who was on the verge of doing something big in the league. I went to TU my first year of undergrad when he was there. He was a very humble dude plus he was a Que :-) I am glad that Bob did something financially for him.

    Bob McNair is a cheapskate owner so this is obviously a lie.

    It is funny you were at the game and I was at Bubba's watching the game with some of the Blue Crew members. We all sat there in shock.

    Wait a minute. Bob McNair is paying to send a person to school who is not on the team?! I thought Bob McNair was a miserly cheapskate?!
