Heart-warming J.J. Watt video proves he’s a fan’s friend

Recently, a young Houston Texans fan named Trey was having problems convincing his friends that J.J. Watt was his friend.

So the defensive end proved it. Emphatically. For the world to see. Fabulously.

For “all those of you that don’t believe Trey’s my friend, believe this touchdown,” he said. Then he went long and … Trey hit him with a perfect pass.

This isn’t the first time Watt has brought the awesome.

He found this little girl and had a great moment with her.

Last spring, he paid a surprise visit to a 12-year-old leukemia victim.

Turns out Watt can make people other than opponents cry.
