Whether you’re a Texans fan or not, the extraordinary talent and dedication of defensive end J.J. Watt is worthy of admiration.

“I’m trying to be the superstar that every average Joe would be,” Watt said.

Although Watt had 20½ sacks, four forced fumbles, returned an interception 80 yards for a touchdown and was voted NFL Defensive Player of the Year for the second time last season, he remains eager to find ways to improve.

“There’s about a billion things I’d like to get better at,” Watt said. “It’s the absolute truth, when I watch the film I click over the good plays real fast. All I see when I watch the film is the negative stuff.”

Watt scored five touchdowns last season to become the first defensive lineman with five TDs in a season since 1944. He has piled up 57 sacks and a dozen forced fumbles in just four NFL seasons, putting him on track to record 114 sacks in his first eight seasons.
