If you ever wondered about whether NFL stars are role models for kids, here’s evidence in support of that notion. Steve Levy, a longtime ESPN anchor, shared a poem his 2nd-grader wrote in honor of Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson.
It’s pretty awesome.
Here’s the 2nd grade poem about Deshaun Watson
Using each of the letters in Watson’s last name to describe something about the quarterback, Levy pulled it off to perfection.
- W – ins every time
- A – wesome plays
- T – errific throwing
- S – crambling for 100 yards
- O – n the run always
- N – ever gives up
Now, to be nit-picky, Watson doesn’t win every time. But he is a winner, having posted a 24-13 record as a starter for the Texans. And of course, he won a national championship during his college days at Clemson.
We can’t for a moment argue against Watson being the engineer of many awesome plays (like this). He’s also clearly terrific throwing, but he’s never scrambled for 100 yards (yet) in an NFL game. Due to a porous offensive line, it does seem that Watson is “on the run always.” And it’s scientific fact that this dude never gives up (watch this incredible example).
Watson is also a good guy. He saw Levy’s post on Twitter and responded with, “I love it! Thank you!”
Set to enter his fourth season as a pro, Watson has put up jaw-dropping stats. He’s completed 66.8% of his passes for 9,716 yards with 71 touchdowns and 29 interceptions. A dual-threat quarterback, the Texans star has also rushed for 1,233 yards and 14 touchdowns.
