J.J. Watt can be the hardest hitting player on the football field, but he also has a soft side.

Just take a look at this video from a Houston TV station, when the former Wisconsin Badger and current Houston Texan spent a couple of hours with Cristian Beasley, a 12-year-old who is fighting leukemia.

Watt saw a TV report about Beasley naming his robot "Watt", a robot that goes to school for Beasley.

Watt arranged (with help from NFL Films and Watt's current team, the Houston Texans) to meet Cristian, eventually ending up at school so the football player could meet the class in person.
