Awesome 7-Year-Old Football Fan Sends NFL Player His Autographed PeeWee Jersey

By GILLIAN PENSAVALLE

Cute letters from little kids are pretty great, but a cute letter from an awesomely confident little kid is even better. Houston Texan JJ Watt posted the piece of fan mail on Instagram.

It reads, "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 defensive end and tight end like you. I wear number 99 like you too."

That's adorable, right? Now Anthony goes from super cute to hero status:

He continues, '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.'

There's also a little drawing of Watt rushing Colts quarterback Andrew Luck. It's really sweet that he signs it "your friend." It looks like that friendship is already forming since Watt totally appreciated Anthony's moxie saying, "This kid has some guts, I like it."
