Houston Texas star defensive end J.J. Watt received a monstrous welcome as he took the field in Houston Sunday afternoon against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Watt ran onto the field carrying a Texas flag, and the stadium went wild.


Watt has done an incredible job of raising money for the victims and recovery efforts after Hurricane Harvey. He has already raised $30 million for the people of Texas. His initial goal was only $200,000.
