Houston Texans defensive end and three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year J.J. Watt is an absolute warrior on the field. Returning in time for the playoffs from a torn pectoral muscle is the most-recent example of this.

Mr. Watt is also a highly altruistic figure within the Houston community and around the United States.

A young Kansas City Chiefs fan found this out first-hand ahead of Watt’s Texans taking on their AFC rivals in the divisional round at Arrowhead on Sunday.

Check out Watt signing a football during pre-game warmups, only to hand the young Chiefs fan a signed football.

That’s what is should be all about. Regardless of the young kid rooting for the opposing team, Watt figured he’d make his day. The reaction is just glorious.

Watt is hard to root against. He’s such a great football player, and an even better man.
