NFL rookie gives first paycheck to stadium workers affected by Harvey.

Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson may be an NFL rookie, but he’s already made his influence felt by donating his first game check to three stadium workers who were affected by Hurricane Harvey.

Deshaun has a base salary of $465,000, and his first game check was for $27,353, which he split between three women who work in the NRG Stadium’s cafeteria.

“For what you all do for us every day and never complain, I really appreciate you all, so I wanted to give my first game check to y’all to help y’all out in some type of way,” Deshaun said in a video shared by the Texans on Facebook.

Deshaun knows what it’s like to struggle in life — and also receive a gift of unexpected kindness. He and his family once received a house built by Habitat for Humanity.

According to coach Bill O’Brien, many of the support staff behind the scenes were especially affected by the hurricane.

“A lot of the people who work so hard for us behind the scenes, especially the people in the cafeteria, I mean, they’re here at 4:30 in the morning,” he said. “And some of those people in Harvey, they lost everything. A number of our players donated money to help them, and he gave his game check, which is incredible.”
