According to sources, J.J. Watt was named to Time Magazine’s “TIME 100,” the list for the 100 most influential people of the year.

Watt is one of six athletes on a list that includes everyone from world leaders to actors to singers to politicians.

Watt joins fellow athletes snowboarder Chloe Kim, figure skater Adam Rippon, tennis star Roger Federer, Kevin Durant, and Indian cricketer Virat Kohli.

In his short write-up, written by Houston mayor Sylvester Turner, this is what was said about the Texans’ defensive end.

Congrats to J.J. and thank you for what you have done for the City of Houston. This honor is well deserved.
