VIDEO: JJ Watt's Motivational Speech to Young Football Team

Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt is well on his way to winning his second Defensive MVP award, but that didn't stop him from stopping by a local football field and talking to a youth football team.

It's one thing to talk to kids about the value of hard work, but Watt actually has practiced what he's preaching.

He started his college career as a tight end at Central Michigan, but transferred and walked on to Wisconsin's football team, where they switched him to defensive end.

Watt became a dominant force and was drafted 11th overall by the Texans in 2011, and he's been the most productive defensive player in the league since then.
