Terrell Owens may not have been on the football field this season after suffering a torn ACL during the offseason, but he still found time to help out a good cause.
“Great to be apart of something special. Josh Howard, obviously doing what he does to support the community. And obviously the community has come out to support him. So, it’s a great deal,” he told Dessie Brown of Class Act Sports at the Josh Howard Foundation’s 2011 Celebrity Basketball game in texas in June.
Howard’s Foundation specializes in raising money to help children succeed academically as well as helping underdeveloped communities.
Having not played in the NFL since the 2010 season, Brown asked Owens about what he is currently doing.
“Right now I’m currently working on my reality show, ‘The T.O. Show” which airs August 22 on VH1. So be sure to tune in. Other than that I’m trying to get into acting. I’m doing some stuff out in L.A. Trying to prepare for my life after football,” he said.
He goes on to tell Class Act Sports that his movie debut, “Dysfunctional Friends”, is set to be released soon.
Owens, a six-time Pro-Bowl selection, has played 14 seasons in the NFL (1996-2010) with five different teams. In November 2011, he joined the Allen Wranglers with the Indoor Football League, also becoming a co-owner of the team in January 2012. He scored three touchdowns in his debut.
Brown concludes by asking Owens if he would like to continue his career in the NFL.
“I’m just going to continue to work out and prepare myself, as I always have, and just hope for the best,” Owens told Class Act Sports.
