Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson is already making a big impact in the NFL, and fans can look no further than his recent donation to three cafeteria employees of NRG Stadium (they were affected by Hurricane Harvey) to figure that one out.
His donation was via his first game check.
Here’s Watson’s reasoning for the donation (via ESPN): “For what you all do for us every day and never complain, I really appreciate you all, so I wanted to give my first game check to y’all to help y’all out in some type of way,” Watson told the woman in a video shared by the Texans. “Here you guys go.”
“Watson, who has a base salary of $465,000, donated a check for $27,353.”
Watson, playing in just his first year in the NFL, and coming off of a national championship victory at the college level with the Clemson Tigers, has already racked up 528 passing yards, three passing touchdowns, 124 rushing yards and one more score on the ground in three games in the pros.
He was picked No. 12 overall by the Texans in the 2017 NFL Draft, and he already appears to be a great pick for so many different reasons.
Keep doing you, Deshaun Watson.
