J.J. Watt attended Mexico's Copa America training session the day before the team's match Monday in Houston against Venezuela in a visit that showed off Watt's international star-power.
Watt witnessed most of the practice, passed the pigskin around, and presented signed jerseys to Mexican National team star Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez and coach Juan Carlos Osorio.
The 5-foot-9 Hernandez was especially starstruck after standing side-by-side the 6-foot-5, 289 pound defensive lineman.
"It was really cool," Watt told The Associated Press. "To walk into the Mexican National team's practice, and for all of them to know who I was is something that I don't think will ever really register with me. To have that type of international love, it was really cool."
Both Mexico and Venezuela are already guaranteed to move on to the quarterfinals of the Copa America tournament.
