Ruben Jordan, a coach at Clear Creek High School for nearly 30 years, went missing during Hurricane Harvey floods. His family and friends told ABC13 he was last seen helping rescue people from high water.
During the pep rally, the Texans honored Jordan as the Coach of the Week for week one.

"Coach Jordan died in the same way that he lived, and that's striving to help others. And for that reason his memory and legacy live on forever," Texans Ambassador Wade Smith said.
A $5,000 check was also presented to Clear Creek High School from the Houston Texans Foundation and Houston Methodist.
