Houston Sports Awards 2020



The Houston Sports Award
The Houston Sports Awards presented by Insperity was created by The Harris County - Houston Sports Authority to celebrate the most accomplished athletes, coaches, teams, contributors and moments in the Houston Sports Community. The inaugural event was the most exciting, star-studded red-carpet event in the city, and as an exclamation point to the night, we announced the formation of the Houston Sports Hall of Fame and the first inductee class - Earl Campbell, Hakeem Olajuwon and Nolan Ryan. In the spirit of Houston Sports, the 2020 ceremony aims to increase the energy and excitement. LEARN MORE
