Watt broke the Texans franchise record set by former teammate Mario Williams for most sacks in a single season. Watt finished the regular season with 81 tackles (69 solo), 20.5 sacks, 23 tackles for loss, 4 forced fumbles, 2 fumble recoveries, and an astonishing 16 passes defended - a statistic usually reserved for defensive backs. Making his All-Pro debut, he was an unanimous choice for The Associated Press All-Pro team. Because of his knack for batting balls down at the line of scrimmage, he was nicknamed "J.J. Swatt" by Monday Night Football commentator and former NFL head coach Jon Gruden.
Watt became the first player in NFL history to record 16.5 sacks and tip 15 passes in a single season after a Week 13 victory against the Tennessee Titans. He was a starting defensive end for the AFC Division in the 2013 Pro Bowl.
On January 15, 2013, Watt was selected as the AFC Defensive Player of the Year. On February 3, 2013, Watt was awarded the AP NFL Defensive Player of the Year, receiving 49 of the 50 total votes.  (Wikipedia)
All of this was accomplished by JJ Watt having an unbelievable determination to be the best. Here is what he said about what motivates him to succeed on a daily basis...
Tee Major: What motivates you on a daily basis to succeed?
JJ Watt: A lot of guys may be motivated by money or be motivated by this or by that. For me, it's being the greatest at what I do. I have a job where everyday I compete and I want to be the absolute best in the world at what I do. That's why I wake up everyday. It's so I can make that happen.
