Houston QB Watson surprises mom with home renovation

first_imgBy an hour ago In this April 28, 2017, file photo, Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson, right, poses with his mother Deann after an NFL football news conference in Houston.  (AP Photo/David J. Phillip, File) HOUSTON (AP) — Deshaun Watson’s mother spent years encouraging him to chase his dreams.center_img Now that Watson has achieved one of his biggest goals of reaching the NFL, the Houston Texans quarterback is giving back to her by renovating the home he grew up in.“She is my rock, my hero,” Watson said. “She always was there giving 100 percent each and every day to try to be the best she can be to help her kids be successful.”It’s been well-documented that the Watson family received a home from Habitat For Humanity when Deshaun was 11 years old in Gainesville, Georgia. His mother still lives in that house, but now that he’s receiving NFL paychecks he decided it was time to spruce it up.His mother is a survivor of throat cancer and watching her fight through the disease made him even more determined to do something special for her.“She deserves it,” Deshaun said. “It’s been a solid home for us for … over 12 years now. (But) living room, kitchen and dining area, those areas need a little touch up. Everything she went through, this is really the smallest thing I can do for her.”Watson chronicled the spiffy makeover of his mother’s living room, dining room and kitchen on an online show called “My Houzz,” which can be seen here , and used the renovation website to plan and carry out the project.Watson worked with a contracting team he found on the website, but he selected everything for the renovation. He picked the perfect lights, the color scheme, artwork for the wall, the right bar stools and kitchen cabinet, among dozens of other additions. Watson was thrilled to learn he could add a fireplace, something his mother had long wanted.He was pleased when told there’d be no need to build a chimney because it was an electric fireplace that starts with the flip of a switch.The 23-year-old Clemson graduate got a look at the completed project before unveiling it to his mother, and he loved how everything turned out. When his mother arrived, he greeted her outside and held her hand as she closed her eyes before he led her into the fabulous upgraded space. When she opened her eyes and gazed around the room, a huge smile spread across her face. Her son’s smile was just as broad.He was right about the fireplace, too. It was one of the first things Deann commented on.“I love my fireplace,” she said. “I love it.”She walked around her renovated home with wide eyes, taking in all the beautiful changes. She was also excited to see that her microwave, which formerly took up counter space, was now built into one of the cabinets.“I never thought it would be like this,” she said. “It’s beautiful.”Watson enjoyed the challenge of leading this project, but the best moment came when he saw the joy the gift brought his mom.“I could just see it in her eyes,” Watson said. “She was very moved. Everything that she saw, she loved it. Being a son and being able to take care of your momma and help her out felt good.”___More AP NFL coverage: and read more

‘If they didn’t matter, they wouldn’t play ‘em’—Steelers preseason (Aug. 14)

first_imgLike us at @NewPghCourier on Twitter by Bill Neal, For New Pittsburgh CourierIt goes without saying if the Emperor Charles “Chuck” Noll said it, take it to the bank. His response when asked by a reporter if he thought pre-season games were important.:10—That being said, here’s your exclusive preseason Pittsburgh Steelers report as they prep to play the Kansas City Chiefs Saturday, Aug. 17 at Heinz Field.:09—Overall team game…No drama, no headaches, no cold feet issues, no helmet protests. Just great hard nosed heads up football:08—Coach Tomlin…Clearly ready to move the team forward. No interest what-so-ever in discussing the past and any of its complications. Clearly focused on the task at hand and had his team ready to play on two counts. #1. Let’s win this game and send former Steelers offensive coordinator Bruce Arians packin’! #2. Let’s show the Steeler Nation we’re a better team without Twiddle Dee and Twiddle Dum.:07—Quarterback…we know that future Hall-of-Famer Ben Roethlisberger is the man for this plan. However, the backup spot just got interesting. Last year’s number two man, Josh Dobbs, didn’t lose any ground with a decent preseason arm showing, and gained a step or two showcasing his running talents. Mason Rudolph made it interesting with steady and confident play and a great touchdown throw to first-year tight end Zach Gentry, and for the record, Brogan Roback won’t be back…He’ll be busy making “Duck Calls!”:06—Running backs…Here’s where the party’s at. Of course All-Pro James Conner is the man. But Jaylen Samuels and Benny Snell Jr. are going to be a great complement to Conner. Rosie Nix will continue to be Mr. Versatile.:05—“O-Line”…The best in the NFL when they’re at their best. Alejandro Villanueva, Ramon Foster, All-Pro Maurkice Pouncey, David DeCastro, Matt Feiler, B.J. Finney, Chukwuma Okorafor, Vance McDonald, Xavier Grimble, and Zach Gentry (tight ends) are where it all gets started upfront!:04—“D-Line”…This is where the rubber meets the road and the nasty has to get going. Cameron Heyward, Stephon Tuitt, Javon Hargrave, Tyson Alualu, Dan McCullers (all 6’7 and 350 pounds of him) and Isaiah Buggs must plug the holes, create fumbles, get sacks and bring the noise “right here…right now.”:03—Linebackers…By now you know that Devin Bush is the real deal, 10 tackles on opening night, Jon Bostic, L. J. Fort, Tyler Matakevich, Vince Williams, Mark Barron, Sutton Smith, Ulysses Gilbert and T. J. Watt will combine to improve a Steeler linebacker group that suffered through a multitude of sins last year with the loss of Ryan Shazier.:02—“D-Backs”…Wish I could say I was saving the best for last, but that just wouldn’t be true. Right now we have Joe Haden, one of the best in the NFL. The rest will be determined in the coming week.:01—Receivers…Now here’s the best! JuJu Smith-Schuster, James Washington, Diontae Johnson, let the race begin.:00—Special Teams…Already improved in all areas.:00:00—Get ready to vote. Do it like your life depends on it.GAME OVER.last_img read more
