Super Bowl LV champion and Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady shared a heartfelt message to Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson during the 22nd-annual Super Bowl Gospel Celebration televised on BET Saturday night.
The virtual production kicked off with a dynamic prayer led by Pastor Mike Todd and was hosted by television and radio personality Rickey Smiley.
In between musical performances, Watson was presented this year’s “Faith In Action Award” by retired NFL running back Warrick Dunn, a man of faith who played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Atlanta Falcons during his career.
Dunn had been a big inspiration to Watson as a child. Watson grew up as the son of a courageous cancer survivor. As a kid, Watson and his mother were provided housing through one of Dunn’s philanthropic initiatives.
Watson has since followed in those footsteps and is now one of the NFL’s youngest humanitarians.
