According to SBNation.com, the Houston Texans will be the featured team on HBO’s Hard Knocks this summer.
The HBO documentary series is entering its 10th season and will premiere Aug. 11 at 9 p.m.
The Texans officially made the announcement Wednesday afternoon. Team owner Bob McNair said, “It’s a great opportunity to showcase our team.” HBO also announced that for the first time, Hard Knocks will also air on HBO Now, a streaming service that does not require a cable subscription.
The show follows one NFL team as it goes through the training camp process and follows the coaching staff and players closely in preparation for the regular season. This is the first time the Texans will appear on the show.
The Texans entered the season with a new coaching staff and few expectations. However, they finished the 2014 season with a 9-7 record and while they never really threatened the Colts in the AFC South, the roster is loaded with talented players. Including the reigning Defensive Player of the Year and one of the most exciting players in the NFL, J.J. Watt.
