JJ Watt, Texans team president Jamey Rootes and H-E-B senior vice president Armando Perez presented a check for $47,000, for the 47 team sack total in 2012, to president and CEO of the Houston Food Bank Brian Greene on Friday. This money translates into 141,000 meals for hungry Houstonians! Video.

In the debut of “My Story”, a video series where Houston Texans players talk about special photos of them, defensive end JJ Watt talks about the body armor he wore on his trip to Afghanistan with the USO tour in March 2013.
