HOUSTON – Michael Strahan has become pretty successful since his days at Texas Southern University — from the NFL gridiron, to the glitz of live television.
But a recent donation to his alma mater in Houston proves he hasn’t forgotten those who helped him along the way.
The $100,000 gift is intended to help send TSU’s Ocean of Soul marching band out to Canton, Ohio, for Strahan’s induction to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Strahan isn’t the only big name to make a donation to the Ocean of Soul. Actor Kevin Hart also pledged $50,000.
The band still has to orchestrate a little way fundraising to reach the full $160,000 needed for the trip, but thanks to the generous gifts, Ocean of Soul will most likely represent TSU at the hall of fame festivities.
After trying so hard to get there, you can bet they’ll put on one heck of a show.
