The NFL’s Houston Texans may not be having the greatest season on the football field, but that hasn’t stopped one famous diehard fan from cheering them on.
On Sunday, Simone Biles took her fandom to the next level by debuting as an honorary Texans cheerleader before the team’s home game against the San Francisco 49ers.
As an added bonus, she also found time to take a few photos with NBA legend Hakeem Olajuwon, a 7-foot center who once starred for the Houston Rockets.
This isn’t the first time that the Olympic gold medalist has teamed up with her hometown Texans. In 2016, Biles had the honor of announcing one of the team’s draft picks, and in 2015, she made this memorable entrance onto the field after a pre-game introduction.

He packed healing crystals – despite how heavy they made his luggage – for everyone on the team.
“They said, ‘Don’t pack too much,’ but I packed every healing crystal I could find,” said Rippon, according to a PyeongChang 2018 media release. “It’s quartz and quartz is very heavy and I have brought plenty of it for everyone.
“I’ll bring anything, it won’t hurt. It’s the Olympics. I threw some of them in my skates, in my bag.”
But of course, he still had to perform in the Games – and he delivered.
Rippon delivered a solid men’s free skate as part of the team event program. His performance was the third best, behind Canada and Olympic Athletes from Russia.
