Rockets honor Santa Fe High School students, staff and law enforcement

- As game 5 of the Western Conference Finals began members of the Santa Fe High School choir sang the national anthem. The first shot for charity was taken by Rachel Blundell, principal of Santa Fe High School. To honor the students, faculty and law enforcement that have been through so much this last week, owner of the Rockets Tilman Fertitta not only invited them to the game, but took care of everything from food to transportation.

“It’s just horrific what they had to go through , we would like to recognize the loss of life before the game started, we can’t ever forget about them that there were ten lives lost that will never get to enjoy these great moments that we er to enjoy as adults and it’s a sad situation”, says Fertitta.

Giving back to those that have been through so much. “There is nothing like loss of life and as important as and as great as it would feel to win I would give up that win immediately to bring all those ten lives back and erase what happened today because it’s just game and everyone is still going to get paid and I’m going to still be alright regardless of a win or loss but we are where we are this is the life our God created and it’s just what we have to deal with”, says Fertitta.
