From his ferocious hits to the love for his charity, everything JJ Watt does is big time.

Saturday will be the fourth year of the "JJ Watt Charity Classic," but this year it moves to Minute Maid Park.

"I think the buzz this year, and the fact we have sold out the last four years and obviously he has so many great fans," said Connie Watt.

Mrs. Watt is JJ's mom and the Vice President of the "JJ Watt Foundation." She says this event is for the fans.

"Our goal is that everyone who wants to be here and support him and the team and work toward our mission to support after school athletics for middle school kids," she said.

Connie will be busy this football season, as JJ's younger brother, Derek, was drafted by the San Diego Chargers.

"I'm very proud of all of all of the boys, they work very hard," said Watt. "To see their hard work, sacrifice and time has paid off, that's what we like to tell the kids. We are proof that it works."
