Former Houston Texan Lineman, Chester Pitts, talks to The Madd Hatta Morning Show about his charity bowl, the ex-players lawsuit against the NFL on concealing head trauma risks and life after pro football.

Pitts was drafted in the second round of the 2002 NFL Draft by the Houston Texans.  He started every game during his first seven seasons with the Texans, either at left guard or left tackle. During his last season with the team in 2009, Pitts only played in two games, both of which he started. In his last game that season, Pitts injured his right knee, ending his season and later requiring microfracture surgery.

Pitts signed with Seattle as a free agent before the start of the 2010 NFL season, but was not able to recover enough from his off-season surgery to play in the season opener. Pitts appeared in 7 games, starting 5 of them and made the playoffs for the first time in 2010.

The 2nd Annual ‘Stars & Strikes Celebrity Bowling challenge is an event that Chester Pitts, along with fellow NFL Players and celebrities, is hosting to raise funds to support foundation programs that local Houston charities benefit from, such as the YMCA of Greater Houston and YES Prep Schools.

The charity event is being held at the 300 Houston Bowling Lounge at 925 Bunker Hill Road on Thursday, June 21 from 7pm until 10pm.
