A video of NFL player J.J. Watt playing football with a Texas high school student with special needs had been seen by thousands of people by Wednesday.

Before Watt posted a video of the two throwing a football on his Instagram, student Trey Brandt said many people did not believe the two were friends.

Brandt was a junior at Katy High School, the trainer on the school’s football team and had made friends with Watt asking for his autograph two years earlier.

This video originally aired on the KTLA 5 Morning News on Wednesday, May 7, 2014.
