Unless you haven’t consumed any NFL media coverage in the last three years, you’re probably aware that Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt is arguably the most dominant player in the league.

Watt has 14.5 sacks and 5 receiving touchdowns on the year, and whenever he makes a big play at NRG Stadium, “MVP” chants echo throughout the crowd. (RELATED: J.J. Watt Is Oddly Poetic While Terrorizing Offensive Linemen)

Needless to say, it takes a lot to impress this guy, which is exactly what 7-year-old Anthony Tarantelli did.

“I was the most feared rusher in my league this year.” Total power move.

I absolutely love how Anthony’s reason for sending J.J. his jersey is so that Watt will remember him when he grows up and starts eating AFC quarterbacks for breakfast.

If attitude was everything, Anthony would be already be in the league, but he’s got a lot of work before he gets to No. 99’s level.
