No One Is More Proud Of JJ Watt Than His Great Grandmother (and The Entire City of Houston)


JJ Watt is the heart and soul of the Houston Texans. He is one of the best defensive players in the NFL. He has raised over $30 million for Hurricane Harvey relief. His entire city claims to love and feel pride for him. But not even an entire stadium of roaring fans can hold a candle to the pride his 99-year-old great-grandmother has for him.

You may think that this is the pinnacle of acclaim, representing a state (sorry Cowboys fans) and the indomitable heart of a city recovering from one of the worst storms ever recovered:

But truly, that is nothing compared to Watt’s great-grandmother who proudly wore Watt’s jersey to church on Sunday.

She is currently as old as the number JJ wears, but will be turning 100 later this month.
