Jamey Rootes leads the lineup as the keynote speaker for the 2010 Champions Club Benefit Luncheon. Rootes serves as president of the Houston Texans and has been with the franchise for 10 years. He has overseen the team’s efforts to secure stadium naming rights and sponsorship and coordinated radio and TV broadcasting relationships. He also engineered the club’s successful ticket and suite sales campaigns, led the creation and launch of the team’s identity and developed its highly acclaimed customer service strategy.
The mission of the Champions Club is to strengthen the University’s Athletic Department by providing financial support for the athletic program, promoting community awareness and increasing involvement in the University.
Thanks to the Champions Club, the UST Intercollegiate Athletics program continues to grow. In 2009-2010, men’s basketball was added to complement women’s volleyball and men’s soccer. The success of our teams has raised school spirit and engaged more alumni and friends than ever before. As the Champions Club membership expands, more sports are planned. Each person who attends this benefit luncheon become a Champions Club member and a benefactor of our student athletes.
