J.J. Watt gives youth football team a speech they didn't expect and won't soon forget (VIDEO)

We all know J.J. Watt does a lot of good things on the football field — sacking quarterbacks, collecting fumbles and scoring pick-sixes — but the Texans defensive end also does nice deeds off of it as well.

The one-man wrecking crew was on his way home from practice late last month, when he saw a youth football team at their own practice and decided to stop by and give the young players a speech they'll probably be repeating to each other for a long time.

They are still kids so ... at least they'll be bragging about the time they met J.J. Watt.

Watt starts his speech by explaining why he showed up.

"I was on my way home and saw some football going on. I always like to stop out and see the game being played, especially at a young age. It's in its purest form," Watt says. "You guys come out here and you play for the love of the game."

The MVP candidate stresses the importance of teamwork and wraps it all up by telling the youngsters that whatever they end up pursuing in life: "Work hard at it."

Something he proves on the field every week of the NFL season.
