HOUSTON – If you didn’t already love Texans’ quarterback Deshaun Watson enough, you will now.
The star player gifted a Super Bowl trip to a military veteran. Watson posted the news on his Twitter, thanking the United Service Organizations and United Services Automobile Association for helping send the deserving veteran. KPRC 2 Sports Reporter Ari Alexander caught up with Watson in Miami Friday ahead of the Super Bowl and asked him about it.
The veteran, Roger Miranda, responded to the news on Twitter, saying he was speechless and thanked Watson for the opportunity.
@deshaunwatson THANK YOU SO MUCH! I’m blessed to have served with some of the finest Soldiers throughout my career. They still need our support even after they take off the uniform!— Roger Miranda (@Roger__Miranda) January 27, 2020
“With twenty-two years of military service to his name including multiple overseas deployments, Lieutenant Colonel Miranda is an extraordinary example of what it means to be Army Strong,” Watson said. “I am honored to partner with USAA and the USO to award LTC Roger Miranda and his wife Crystal with this a to Super Bowl LIV in Miami in recognition of his service to our country.”
