February 1, 2019

Texans QB Deshaun Watson will tell you without hesitation that his hero is his mother. He refers to her as his 'rock,' his 'backbone.' And he speaks to her on the phone once a day.

Go ahead, call him a mama's boy because he'll agree with you. But his priorities are clear. He is deeply grateful for the love and support of his mother throughout his life. And now that he's making some money he wanted to buy his mother a brand new house, but she didn't want that. So, he decided to renovate it for her instead. It's a house that was built for them by Habitat for Humanity and Deshaun will tell you it changed everything for them.
