Paging Dr. Watt

Houston Texans' great JJ Watt can add another title to his resume.

"I've had a lot of big dreams in my life, but not even I ever dreamt I would become a doctor one day."

Watt was awarded an Honorary Doctorate in Humanities at Baylor College of Medicine. 

The 6' 5" football star almost had to get on his knees to receive his hood.  Watt broke his leg at the knee five games into the Texans' 2017 season. 

He also motivated graduates during his speech:

"What I challenge you to do is to help bring out that inherent good in everyone around you; help be that positive light, help be that person that everybody else wants to be around.  And help be that energy that takes this world into an even better place."  

Watt was honored for his relief efforts during Hurricane Harvey.  He set out to raise 200,000 dollars, and collected 37-million.
