We all know how great JJ Watt is, on and more importantly off the field. New Orleans Saints punter Thomas Morstead knows this first-hand.

Watt has this ritual prior to the game, be it on home turf or in enemy territory, where he goes around the stadium and plays catch with kids in the stands. He did so again during Monday night’s season opening game in New Orleans.

The five-time Pro Bowler was tossing the ball to the kids in the stands and even to those that weren’t wearing the right jersey. One of the kids he tossed the ball to just happened to be Morstead’s son, Beckett. The youngster was eating a lollipop at the time which was knocked out of his hand by Watt’s toss. Being the great human being that he is, Watt immediately made it up the youngster who began to cry.

Watt repaid the youngster for his lost candy by giving him his gloves. After seeing Morstead’s tweet the day after the game, he apologized once again.

For Beckett, it was a great night. He got to toss the ball with Watt, got his gloves and saw his dad’s team win an extremely exciting game.

Oh, and he even got his lollipop back. Who knew that the five-second rule applied to stadium floors as well?
