J.J. Watt volunteers at Las Vegas food bank prior to ‘The Match’

Jun 3, 2022, 6:17 PM | Updated: 6:29 pm

Arizona Cardinals defensive lineman J.J. Watt took advantage of being in the Las Vegas area on Wednesday ahead of his involvement in TNT’s “The Match.”

Watt volunteered at Three Square, a food bank in southern Nevada that distributed more than 41 million meals in 2019.

Watt participated as a part of Wheels Up’s day of service, helping pack up over 450 bags of food for the company’s partnership with Feeding America for a Meals Up campaign that will supply 10 million meals to the food insecure and those facing hunger during the COVID-19 crisis.

The defensive lineman’s day continued for TNT’s “The Match” when he hosted a pregame talk with the participants of the golf exhibition: Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen.

He was also a part of the commentary team during the play and was able to get a few good lines in.
