Houston elementary school holds J.J. Watt tribute on ’99th Day’ (pic)


A Houston-area elementary school celebrated the 2015-16 school year’s 99th day of classes by paying tribute to Texans superstar J.J. Watt

A photo was tweeted out on Tuesday morning documenting how several students at Hailey Elementary in The Woodlands, Tex., donned Watt jerseys to commemorate 99 days of school.

Somehow, the tweet caught Watt’s attention and he couldn’t help but feel flattered by it all.

According to a report from ESPN’s Tania Ganguli, a receptionist told her that students at the school — where 700 kids from pre-kindergarten to fourth grade are enrolled — were encouraged to wear Texans jerseys to school on Tuesday, specifically Watt’s No. 99. Those who did don Watt jerseys are featured in the photograph that probably made Watt’s day.
