JJ Watt has once again proven himself to be amongst the coolest guys currently playing in the NFL, this time by playing football with a young fan, and letting the world know they were best friends.
The young aspiring quarterback in the video, Trey, had been telling people at his school that him and the Texans defensive end were tight, but no one would believe him.
This prompted Watt to post the video to his Instagram account with the caption:
"I'm J.J. Watt. This is my buddy Trey and all of you who don't believe Trey is my friend, believe this touchdown."
Trey then displayed his quaterback credentials, hitting Watt in full stride, a throw that the young man will never forget, and one that is sure to silence the detractors at his school.
Watt has built up a reputation of going out of his way for his fans. In January 2013, Watt met a 6-year-old girl who was seen crying on youtube, as she was not old enough to marry the superstar. Watt proposed to her, and made her his 'wife for the day'.
He has also visited a young cancer patient recently, who is a Texans fan, and admires JJ Watt.
After seeing the kid on the news, Watt made sure he made a surprise visit to the fan, posing for photos and signing autographs.
