Five Truths and Five Lies About J.J. Watt

Texans DE J.J. Watt is a defensive force to be reckoned with. But how well do you know him?  


Below are 10 super interesting facts about J.J. Watt. Five are as true as the rain that falls mainly on the plains of Texas. The other five? Houston, we have a problem... we made them up!

 

Can you choose the truth from the lies?  Tell us in comments.
