It's tough to think of a better role model for a young player than Texans defensive end J.J. Watt. Not only is he the best defensive player in the NFL, he's got three receiving touchdowns this season.
Seven-year-old Anthony Tarantelli knows this. Watt is his favorite player, and he wants to play in the NFL just like Watt. So Anthony sent Watt his jersey, and autographed it "so you will know me when I am a famous NFL player."
This is a good plan. Anthony and Watt could be fearsome bookends on the defensive line some day. Would Watt give up No. 99, though?
