J.J. Watt to deliver Papa John's pizzas

"Better ingredients. Better pizza… and some J.J. Watt."

Twenty-six people will soon have J.J. Watt on their front doorsteps.

With pizza.

If you order from Papa John's during the football season, it could be you.

"Every single Tuesday there will be a winner and they'll get a phone call from me," Watt explained. "At some point—I'm a little busy during the season—but at some point you're gonna have a pizza delivered by me. A little personal pizza party, and it's pretty cool to interact with the fans that way."

Each winner plus nine of their family and friends will have the opportunity to mingle and enjoy a slice with the All-Pro. As a bonus, Papa John's is unveiling special Watt-themed boxes that will hold all delivery pies.

The philanthropic Watt, who used to deliver pizzas back in college, teamed up with Papa John's for a good cause. The "Preferred Pizza of the Houston Texans" will donate 10 percent of all Tuesday sales to the J.J. Watt Foundation, which provides after-school opportunities for children in the community so that they can become involved in athletics.

"The best part about this is that it's for a great cause. It's for kids and we're gonna raise a whole lot of money for kids. We're talking a few hundred thousand dollars hopefully. If you order a pizza on Tuesday during the season, you're gonna be changing a child's life which is really special."
