NASHVILLE, TN (WMC) - Tennessee Titans linebacker Brian Orakpo was born and raised in Houston. He is now fundraising and collecting items for Hurricane Harvey survivors.
The Titans organization has partnered with Orakpo in this relief effort, using Nissan Stadium as a collection point.
The Houston Oilers became the Tennessee Titans in 1997, and Bum Phillips was head coach in Houston from 1975-80.
