CJ Stroud helps clean up in Houston after deadly storms, while Texans QB plays outside with kids and does his job for the city


Texans quarterback CJ Stroud is helping Houston in its hour of need after a series of deadly storms swept through the city last week.

Seven people were killed after hurricane-force winds — some reaching 100 mph — heavy storms and rain ravaged Houston, also leaving more than one million people without power.

Thousands of workers tried to restore power and clean up the town – including Stroud – after the devastating storms.

Photos and footage captured by radio host @ashleeonair show the NFL star doing his part to help restore order in Houston while playing a game of catch with kids in a local neighborhood.

Severe thunderstorms first rolled in last Thursday, causing apocalyptic scenes in Southeast Texas.

Subsequent power outages could last for weeks in parts of Houston, an official warned Friday after winds swept through the city.

Stroud, who has helped out in the community on several occasions in the past year after starting his own charitable foundation, was selected by the Texans with the second overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft.

The 22-year-old helped lead Houston to the AFC South title in his rookie season, throwing 23 touchdown passes and 4,108 yards.

Thousands were without power for days after the storm tore through Houston — leaving many residents without air conditioning in the sweltering Texas heat.
