Watt pays a hopsital visit to paralyzed boy

Posted by Nick Scurfield on July 18, 2011 – 9:05 am

Inspired by a message on Twitter, Texans defensive end J.J. Watt recently paid a visit to nine-year-old Peter Berry in a local hospital.

Berry, according to the Jewish Herald-Voice, was paralyzed in a July 2 car accident that killed his parents and injured his two younger siblings. A fan reached out to Watt and other Texans and Rockets players on Twitter with a link to the story, and Watt replied immediately saying that he wanted to visit Peter and his brother Aaron in the hospital.

Watt brought autographed Texans gear for Peter and Aaron, who both play youth football. The Texans’ first-round draft pick from Wisconsin asked Peter for recommendations on what to do in Houston, shared his mutual admiration for Justin Bieber and invited Peter to a Texans game this season. Watt went so far as to put his cell phone number and e-mail address in Peter’s Apple iPad, telling him to text or e-mail him anytime.

“I read the story and was absolutely touched – for the kids to lose their parents like that, but then still have the courage to be strong in spirit and fight for their recovery, it’s inspiring,” Watt said to the Jewish Herald-Voice. “To be able to come up here and see the kids and be able to put smiles on their faces in such a touch situation, it’s really meaningful. I figured it’s just something I can do to help these kids out.”

    Mr Watt I have the up most respect for a man who can do what you did for these kids in need. Your a great big man with an even bigger heart. God will bless you for your kindness and your time you spend with these two kids (Peter and Aaron)
    I am a season ticket holder and cant wait to see you preform on the field. I know you are the right man for the job, Good luck and keep up your good will here in Houston.

    Thanks JJ,

    I hope that more players with the teams take lessons from you. Its not about the money its all about the fans. These two youngens were just given a real live hero to look upto. I as well will encourage my own youngens to follow you and your career. Thanks for being a hero for the kids of America

    Thanks goes out to Zach Adelstein !

    Prayers go out to Peter and Aaron .

    And let’s ask “NIKE” to reward “J.J. Watt

    ” with a “huge” contract to be one of their “pitchman”. A “representative” of their company.
    Oh wait a minute . . . i forgot , NIKE likes to reward “murder’s” with nice new contracts. America likes to reward people of low character and morals (Jersey shore cast), with huge contracts .
    Thats’s what NIKE sells . . .”anything that will make them money! Even if it means their supporting “bad guys”, and sending out all the “WRONG MESSAGES” to our kids !
    I challenge ‘NIKE’ to use this tragic story of Peter and Aaron , and make J.J. Watt the “new face” of NIKE , and let’s see what happens ?!
    It might just change the horrible trend America is in of rewarding “BAD” …instead of “GOOD” .

    JJ, this is what makes a true role model. I hope you bring light to your
    Justin J. Watt foundation so that the many generous Houstonians and
    rabid Texans fans can get involved and help your cause.

    Welcome to Houston! You’ve made an amazing impression off the field!
