Houston Texans coach Smith made the following statement about the team:

Let’s get to some of the really important things, like congratulating the Pearland Little League team on making the World Series. That’s pretty awesome. In between meetings, got a chance to watch a little bit of the game. Just exciting as much as anything. No matter what level you play, to get a chance to move up and play in something like that is pretty special. Can’t wait to see them kind of finish it up and bring it on home.
