Jaron Barganier was sitting at the dinner table with his mother one evening in 2001 when he was discussing how he would like to give back to the community.

Fifteen years later Barganier is not only giving back to his native Houston, but he is the founder and CEO of a growing non-profit.

“I was telling my mother that I wanted to read to kids and do some mentoring,” said the former of University of Houston offensive lineman. “So we literally wrote the idea down on a napkin and that idea turned into reality.”

The reality is that Be A Champion has served more than one million underprivileged youths in Houston and other Texas cities.

Thanks Patrick - Wife and I give what we can afford each year. I think I read it takes $25 for them to take one Little Coog to a home game, which includes food and drink, etc. So COOGFANS - give what you can for this worthy cause. Thanks.
