Description This is an oral history interview with Kenneth Houston conducted as part of the Houston History Project. Former NFL player and Hall of Famer, Kenneth Houston discusses many topics from his feelings when he was drafted to an NFL team near his hometown to watching football games after retirement. The interview focuses on his views about the history of professional football in the city of Houston and the Houston Oilers team. Mr. Houston has a deep knowledge on the workings of football as a business and an entertainment spectacle as a result of his many years as a professional football player and coach. Although he remains a fan of the sport, Mr. Houston wonders how he ever managed to play. Football is defined as a “business first and foremost,” and this philosophy influenced major decisions in the NFL, mainly Bud Adam‟s transfer of the Houston Oilers to Tennessee. The second half of the interview dissects the current state of football in the city of Houston and whether or not Mr. Houston believes Houstonians will embrace the Oiler's successors, the Houston Texans.
