Deshaun Watson is really good at football. He’s also really good at life, too.
On Wednesday, the former Clemson star and current Houston Texans starting quarterback surprised three women who work for the team’s cafeteria and lost everything during the destruction of Hurricane Harvey with a very special gift.: His first NFL game paycheck.
Here’s the touching video (grab some tissues first):
Watson, who was drafted No. 12 overall by the Texans this past April, has had a strong start to his rookie campaign. In three appearances (two starts), he’s 49-of-80 (61.3 percent) with 528 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions, adding another 124 yards and a score with his feet.
More notably, he threw for over 300 yards and finished with a 90.6 passer rating in a surprisingly close 36-33 loss to the New England Patriots in Foxboro last weekend.
Good for you, Deshaun, for being a true role model and class act.
