Most 7 (to 70) year old football fans in Houston are fans of Houston Texans player JJ Watt. That includes 7 year old Anthony “JJ” Tarantelli who is JJ’s “biggest fan” and the “most feared rusher” in his football league this year.
To show his appreciation for the Texans’ star, Anthony mailed JJ an autographed jersey with an awesome drawing and note that said “you will know me when I’m a famous NFL player.” JJ posted a picture of the note and jersey on Twitter with the following words: This kid has some guts….I like it. He also reportedly reached out to Anthony and is mailing something in return.
Aside from delivering Papa John pizzas, JJ is known for surprising his fans and here’s a video from 2011 of Watt visiting a fan at his school after receiving the kid’s fan letter.
