Watt tweeted this photo earlier on Friday in what appears to be children from Newton, CT. Days after the tragedy that took place at Sandy Hook elementary, Watt wore gloves with the town’s name on them.

Usually, when Watt is in this position, he is ready to bring terror on opposing QBs. These kids couldn’t be more excited to be lined up across from him.
