J. J. Watt is a great player for the Houston Texans’ NFL franchise. That is not just a statement about his football skills, but also the way he uses his celebrity to better our community.
On Sunday, November 18, Willa, Aaron, and Peter Berry received a special salute from their hero, National Football League player J. J. Watt. Watt, a defensive end for the Houston Texans, has grown close to the Berry children. Their parents were killed in a 2011 car accident, which also severely injured Willa and left the boys paralyzed from the waist down and in wheelchairs.
Recently, Watt and the children were playing wheelchair basketball. Watt said,
“They said they’re going to be watching the game. They said give us a signal.
I said OK, when I get a sack, I’ll do the wheelchair.” His next sack came when
he sacked the Jacksonville Jaguars’ quarterback, Chad Henne. Watt jumped up and
imitated someone spinning the wheels of a wheelchair.
Do you have any great ideas for a holiday good deed? So many of us have so much, and I was just wondering what we might be able to do during this season to spread a bit of cheer.
I would love you to share your ideas in the comments below.
