Roy Lopez was selected by the Houston Texans in this year’s National League Football Draft. Roy has deep roots in the AZNLPOA as the son of former board member Veronica Gomez, grandson of Lifetime Member and former State and Chapter president Ron Gomez., nephew of National board member, and former Chapter President Andrew Gomez, and nephew of former Chapter President Nick Gomez.
Prior to being drafted by Houston Roy attended New Mexico State University, where he started all three years as a defensive tackle, graduating with a bachelor’s degree. Roy played his final year of college football at the University of Arizona. Roy, a two time state heavyweight champion, had several NFL teams interested in drafting him. Ultimately, it was the Texans that fulfilled his lifelong goal of playing in the NFL.
Roy couldn’t be more proud of his Hispanic heritage enhanced by his and his family’s involvement in the NLPOA. He grew up with the NLPOA and is proud of the organization and its work with youth, scholarships, and Latinos in law enforcement. Roy is grateful to the NLPOA for their acknowledgement and will do his best to represent.
