(Video Interview) J.J. Watt - Houston Texans DE

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.[14] Making his All-Pro debut, he was an unanimous choice for The Associated Press All-Pro team.[15] 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.[16]

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.[17] On February 3, 2013, Watt was awarded the AP NFL Defensive Player of the Year, receiving 49 of the 50 total votes. [18] (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.
