JJ Watt is well known for sacking quarterbacks, stopping running backs and terrorising offensive lines all over the NFL. 

However, the Houston Texans star has spent the majority of 2016 on the sideline as he recovers from multiple injuries sustained from last season. It seems that time off the field has led Watt to philanthropy.

This is after it was revealed that the defensive end had recently donated $10,000 to a young high school football player who suffered a serious injury during a game and is currently in a coma in hospital.

Grant Milton, a senior linebacker at The Woodlands High School in Texas, underwent emergency surgery after suffering a serious injury in a playoff game on Saturday, where he collapsed on the field after a big hit.

Watt somehow heard about the injury to the young man and did what he could to help out Milton and his family, by donating $10k to a GoFundMe that has been set up for the teenager.

Watt made his donation and left a note to go along with it:

“If there’s anything that I can do to help, please let me know. Sending my best wishes to Grant and the entire Milton family.”

A classy move from a world class player. If you wish to donate to Grant Milton's GoFundMe, you can find a link here.
