Seven-Year-Old Kid Sends J.J. Watt Signed Jersey Of Himself

This kid is already more alpha than me, and he's a quarter my age. We need to remember this kid's name for the 2028 NFL Draft.

Deadspin was kind enough to transcribe the letter.

Dear J.J.
"I am 7 years old. My name is Anthony Tarantelli and I am your biggest fan. People call me J.J. because I also play DE and TE like you. I wear number 99 like you too. I was the most feared rusher in my league this year. I am sending you my autographed game jersey so you will know me when I am a famous NFL player.
99 rocks!
Your friend Anthony.
