J.J. Watt. Justin James "J. J." Watt was an all-around athlete in high school. While attending Pewaukee High in Pewaukee, Wisconsin, he lettered in baseball, basketball and track in addition to football. Following in his father's footsteps, J.J. competed in the shot put during his senior season, earning a first-team All-state selection. At the 2007 WIAA Division II Championship, he captured the state title in the shot put setting a new school-record with a throw of 59 ft, 11.5 in (18.28 meters).
His senior year was also a break-out year for him in regards to football. Playing tight end and defensive end, he was selected All-County, All-Area, All-Conference and first-team All-State. He was also named the team’s MVP having accumulated a total of 399 receiving yards, 26 catches, and 5 touchdowns.
After receiving a scholarship offer, Watt committed to Central Michigan University. There, Watt was led to believe at the tight end position he would be an integral part of the offense. However, this proved not to be the case. he would be scoring touchdowns at his position as tight end. However, after only eight catches and 2007 nearing its end, Watt knew that was not the case. In 14 games for Central Michigan, he compiled a total of 77 receiving yards and 8 receptions. Deciding that he wasn't a good fit for the team, he opted out of his scholarship to try his luck as a walk-on defensive end closer to home at the University of Wisconsin.
J.J. was redshirted for the 2008 season and was named Wisconsin’s Scout Team Player of the Year. In 2009, he finished the season with 32 solo tackles, 12 assisted tackles, four and a half sacks, 15.5 tackles for loss, and five passes defended. In 2010, he played in 13 games and led the team in tackles for a loss, quarterback hurries, blocked kicks, and forced fumbles. He finished the season with 42 solo tackles, 20 assisted tackles, 21 tackles for loss, seven sacks, one interception, nine passes defensed, and three forced fumbles. He earned the Ronnie Lott Trophy, was voted AP and Sports Illustrated second-team All- American, and he was named to the All-Big Ten first-team. He also also earned academic All-Big Ten honors and was voted the team’s MVP.
Watt was drafted by the Houston Texans in the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft. As a defensive end for the Texans Watt has won the AP NFL Defensive Player of the Year Award twice in his first four seasons. Watt is a defensive end but he occasionally shifts to defensive tackle on rushing plays, and he has taken snaps as a tight end, scoring 3 receiving touchdowns in 2014. In 2014, he became the first player in NFL history to record two 20+ sack seasons. He also holds Texans franchise records for sacks and forced fumbles.
