The Remarkable Story Of How 3 Kids Became Best Friends With One Of The Most Intimidating Guys In The NFL

Ask any football fan to name the best defensive player in the NFL in recent memory and chances are you're going to hear the name "J.J. Watt" pretty often. It's not without reason either as Watt has won the AP NFL Defensive Player of the Year Award twice over the course of his first four seasons in the league. Additionally, last year he became the first/only player to have two seasons with 20+ sacks in his career. He's also a menace on the other side of the ball, lining up with the offense on occasion as a tight end and catching three touchdown passes last year.

As feared and respected as he is for being a ferocious competitor on the field, this video shows that off the field you're not likely to find a better all-round human being. After visiting three siblings who tragically lost their parents in a car crash, Watt formed an unlikely friendship and spent a lot of his free time playing nanny/big brother to them. At the 3:50 mark, we see just how much he has meant to them and it's endearing to see that the scariest man in the NFL has to bite his lip to keep his composure when he hears what one of the boys wrote about him.
