Cook Hospital Visit Gallery

FORT WORTH, Texas -- Three University of Houston football players, SirVincent Rogers, Jackie Hinton Jr. and Patrick Edwards, along with cheerleaders and Shasta made a visit to Cook Children's Hospital on Monday afternoon as part of the ongoing Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl festivities.

The Cougars joined members of the Air Force cheerleading squad at the hospital signing autographs, handing out footballs and visiting with the patients.

"We visited as many rooms as we could and you could see as soon as you walked in the kids were so excited. It was fun to see the smiles on their faces and to make their day," said Rogers. "They got to see all of us and it was like a dream for them. I had a good time."

The trio got to take a break from the game preparations for the visit and its something that they enjoy.

"You go into the trip focused on winning the game but when you get to go to the hospital you get to see the kids, they forget for a little bit what they are going through," Rogers said. "Their faces light up and you get out of the competitive game mode and you are more concerned with the smiles on their faces."

Houston will have a final walk-through tomorrow afternoon before the Dec. 31 contest against the Falcons.

Kickoff for the Armed Forces Bowl is slated for 11 a.m., Dec. 31 at Amon G. Carter Stadium, and the game will be broadcast on ESPN and ESPN Radio.

Tickets are on sale now for the game. For more ticket information go to mycougarconnection.com or call 713-743-9550.
