Houston Texans star J.J. Watt did not have a great season, tallying just 1.5 sacks and eight tackles in three games before being sidelined due to back surgery.
But no matter how rough things may have been, he is apparently always willing to help out those in need.
Known for his various charity works and good deeds, Watt on Monday learned of Noah Fulmer, an 8-year-old kid who was hospitalized after being hit by a car and had his Watt jersey ruined in the process of getting medical attention.
In natural Watt fashion, he responded:
And you know what? Watt did exactly that.
It may seem like a small gesture, but there’s little doubt Watt’s generosity and kindness will lift Noah’s spirits during a time when he could use a smile on his face.
And for Watt, it’s just another notch in a growing belt of good work.
