September 10 King of the Week: JJ Watt


It’s not about football. Never has been.

JJ Watt is a beast on the field. He missed most of the 2016 season with injuries, but his numbers are insane for most of his career. He had 20.5 sacks in 2012 and 2014! In 2015, he had 17.5 sacks! No one guy can block him.

But this isn’t about football. This is about numbers of another kind.

As of this writing, that number is $30 million!

That number is rapidly climbing. That number is the amount of money that JJ Watt has raised for Hurricane Harvey relief in coastal Texas.

Here’s the crazy part: his initial goal was to raise $200 thousand!

This is a king! Here’s a guy who is using his fame, celebrity, and status to be a force for good and a force for relief. There’s no telling how many meals, how much cleanup, and how many homes can be re-built and repaired with that $30 million.

Next week’s King of the Week could be someone you know. Get those nominations in!
