Weekly Update (11/10/00)
College football season is winding down, which means a busy month for
Executive Vice President/General Manager Charley Casserly and the Texans'
Casserly visited Texas A&M and the University of Miami this week before
returning to Houston Friday for facility and scouting meetings. He plans to
attend tomorrow's game between top-ranked Oklahoma and the 24th-ranked
Aggies in College Station. Next week, Casserly will continue his Big 12 tour
with a venture to Nebraska.
Leonard Shapiro of The Washington Post featured Casserly and the Texans in
his weekly NFL notes. Click here to read the story:
Casserly will join Texans Owner Bob McNair in Austin Monday for a reception
at the home of Austin resident Lowell Lebermann.
"We're looking to extend our fan base all over southeast Texas and Austin is
a vital part of our push," Casserly says. "Football is a very important part
of the Austin community. We can offer their fans the best stadium in this
country, a new beginning and a team that they can grow with."
McNair is coming off a successful weekend at the Breeders' Cup in
Louisville. His filly Tout Charmant took second in the Filly & Mare Race
last Saturday. Tout Charmant can now boast six wins and nine second-place
finishes in 21 career starts. Next year's Breeders' Cup Championships will
be at Belmont Park.
