Coronavirus prompts another good deed from J.J. Watt
Watt and Ohai are two of several athletes who have stepped up to help people who stand to lose plenty as the coronavirus outbreak wreaks havoc with local economies. Houston Astros star George Springer has also donated $100,000 to help Minute Maid Park employees.
This also isn’t the first good deed Watt has done for the city of Houston, having earned the NFL’s Walter Payton Man of the Year award by raising $41.6 million to help victims of the 2017 Houston floods.
