After hearing about Grant Milton's injury, J.J. Watt donated $10,000 to the Woodlands High School player's GoFundMe.com page. Milton, a senior linebacker, collapsed during his team's playoff game at McLane Stadium on Saturday. He was rushed to a nearby hospital for emergency brain surgery.
Under the comments section, Watt wrote:
"If there's anything that I can do to help, please let me know. Sending my best wishes to Grant and the entire Milton family."
Grant Farley, Milton's close friend and teammate, wrote a tribute for his friend, in hopes of helping the Milton family with medical costs and living expenses. Milton is currently at Waco Hospital, nearly two hours away from home.
The story quickly spread, even throughout NRG Stadium and the Texans organization.
"I just heard about that," head coach Bill O'Brien. "I didn't know anything about that. Obviously, that doesn't surprise me at all. J.J. is somebody that cares very much about the community and individual kids. J.J. loves high school football."
Milton's GoFundMe page has raised over $87,000. To donate, click here.
Through the #MyCauseMyCleats campaign, Texans players helped design cleats for Week 13 which support the causes and organizations they care about.
