The Jersey Village High School graduate had a distinguished career with the Texas Longhorns — including winning the 2005 national championship. After two seasons in the NFL, Young now shines in the shadows of NRG Stadium — home of the NFL’s Houston Texans. He does this in the food truck business.
“Being from Houston, walking this compound as a kid and going to the Astrodome and Astroworld — it’s really cool,” Young said of his opportunity to attend the 2022 Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.
Young owns two food trucks. One of them, Big Hot’s, is making its Rodeo Houston debut. In fact, Big Hot’s is making history in the process.
“Ninety years – in the history of rodeo, they’ve never had a vegan concept,” Young noted. “For me, a black entrepreneur, I’m the first in this space where it’s never been done.”
According to Young, Big Hot’s is introducing a new aspect to its diet.
“Do it. It’s healthy,” said Young, explaining his truck’s vegan concept. “Why can’t a footballer who has eaten meat his whole life try something different and get people to try it? My goal is to introduce healthy products to people with good taste and good taste.”
Big Hot’s is open daily from 10am to 9pm at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.
