WATCH: Never-Before-Seen J.J. Watt High School Highlight Reel

See where it all began for the Houston Texans defensive powerhouse J.J. Watt.

Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt wasn't always ones of the most intimidating defensive players in the NFL, but he's always had serious guts. Before he began flipping 1,000-pound tires at alarming rates, before he accepted and later gave up a starting position at Central Michigan to walk on at Wisconsin, Watt attended Pewaukee High School in Wisconsin. He also lettered  in basketball, baseball, and track & field, earning a state title in the shot put.

Check out this recently surfaced video of Watt's highlights from high school, where it all started.
