J.J. Watt is continuing to receive honors for his charitable work and this time it is a honorary doctorate from Baylor.

Watt helped raise over $37 million for the Hurricane Harvey relief efforts in Houston and has been honored by many groups since then.

This time, Baylor has decided to hand out a honorary doctorate from the Baylor College of Medicine at a ceremony on May 29.

Watt spent most of his 2017 season on the sideline with a injury, but that didn't stop him from helping so many people who were affected last fall by Hurricane Harvey.

In addition to the doctorate he will receive, Watt already was honored by the NFL with the Walter Peyton Man of the Year Award at the NFL Honors Event in Minneapolis during Super Bowl week.

J.J. Watt has always been a player I have enjoyed off the field, but his effort off the field to help others is even more impressive than his Hall of Fame career on it.
