Press Release

Houston, Texas – Congressman Gene Green congratulates Jefferson Davis High School on being awarded a $50,000 grant from the NFL’s Youth Football Fund Grassroots Program.  Rep. Green wrote a letter in support of Jeff Davis for the grant last November for improvements to the field and facility.

“As a graduate and former Jeff Davis football player, I’m really glad to see them receive this award.  Being a part of a sports team or other extracurricular activity is a great way for kids to stay involved in school and their community.”

The Houston Texans will present the $50,000 check to Jeff Davis High School at a ceremony on Tuesday, September 27, at 2:30 p.m. on the football field.
