DeAndre Hopkins donating playoff check to family of girl

Killed in drive by shooting on Sunday.

Good for DeAndre.

And no parent should ever have to bury their child, especially a 7 year old. I can't imagine what they're going through. Just horrible.

Always been a big fan of Hopkins, horrible tragedy obviously, but great thing to do on his part.

and the Texans have true people leaders on their team ... Kudos to Mr Hopkins ... things like this should get more press but sadly it probably wont.
I hope they find

Indeed. Guy can go get it.

Reminds me of Tim Brown in this sense - has put up excellent numbers despite playing with some uninspiring QBs.
Killer found and apprehended

(or at least the driver was) and he looked nothing like the initial description, it turns out the initial description was of someone who was also fleeing the scene and was scared for his own well being.

that sketch was circulated widely and this was branded by some as a hate crime.

shows once again how people should not jump to initial conclusions.

Hopefully the pressure put on this case by others helped this guy get apprehended. and I don't want to make it political, but you have to wonder if the circumstances weren't how they were initially reported if the same pressure would have been there.

I don't want my post to in any diminish was Hopkins did, the world needs more people like him, not less.
