Rockets' Howard, Parsons take in high school football game
SEP 28, 2013 12:42a ET
In a Houston-area high school student's Hail Mary attempt of a tweet, he invited Howard to attend George Ranch High School's white out game against Foster High School in the Houston suburb of Rosenburg.

Howard not only answered the student's request on Twitter, he even took the young fan up on his offer and showed up at the game with new teammate Chandler Parsons, both of whom wore all white in support of the team.

Judging by the videos and tweets posted by the two Rockets stars, they even had a good time doing what every Texan does best on Thursday and Friday fall nights--cheering on the local high school football team.
"This is impressive," Parsons told the Houston Chronicle. "It's not like where we're from. The crowds are crazy, the kids are into it, so it's a lot of fun."
As if having two NBA stars rooting for your team in the stands wasn't enough, George Ranch took home a big 45-21 victory over Foster to top off the memorable night.
