Houston Texans rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson is using his first game check to help others. In a touching video released on the team’s Twitter account, Watson gave his check to a few stadium employees at NRG Stadium to help get them back on their feet. Per USA Today, the three employees in the video had lost everything due to the flooding caused by Hurricane Harvey.

The employees became emotional and immediately thanked Watson for his generosity. It was a beautiful gesture that will make a big impact on their lives moving forward from the storm.
“Anything else ya’ll need, I’m always here to help,” the 22-year-old quarterback told them in the video.
Watson has already stood out for his performance on the field so far, but this gesture will make an even greater impression off the field.
Deshaun Watson is a first-class young man who's giving Houston hope at quarterback — on and off the field.
