UPDATE ON JJ —
He’s still a dominate player in the NFL and J.J. Watt also continues to make a difference off the field.
The 2010 Lott IMPACT Trophy winner from Wisconsin, Watt intercepted a pass and ran 19 yards for a touchdown just last weekend.
Widely known and respected for his inordinate amount of charity work, Watt heads the Justin J Watt Foundation, which has donated more than $5 million worth of equipment to 6th to 8th graders for after-school athletic programs. The three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year was also instrumental in raising $37 million for Hurricane Harvey relief in 2016. That, in part, earned hm Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year recognition.
The 31-year-old Watt was also married this past off-season to professional soccer player Kealia Ohai.
His foundation’s stated mission: Dream Big – Work Hard. For sure.
