JJ Watt has a humorous reaction to seeing a college football lookalike


JJ Watt has discovered his double. And the Cardinals defensive end had a hilarious response after finding his doppelganger.

Said person is Matt Betz, a defensive lineman at West Liberty University (W. Va.). According to the Random College Athletes Twitter account – a great following – Betz played for the Hilltoppers from 2008 to 2013, which briefly coincided with Watt’s college career. The latter spent a year in residence at Wisconsin in 2008 after being transferred from central Michigan, before playing two seasons for the Badgers in 2009 and 2010.

The resemblance is really noticeable – although, as Watt mentioned, not quite perfect:

Betz took the comment in stride, reacting to Watt’s joke:

Betz also retweeted several other jokes about his resemblance to Watt.

According to the West Liberty team site, Betz ended his playing career as a senior redshirt in 2012 (after redshirting in 2011). He is credited with playing 40 games in his five-year career, totaling 114 tackles (21.5 loss), 13.5 sacks, two forced fumbles, four fumble recoveries and three defensive passes.

It’s not that bad compared to Watt’s college stats – 106 tackles (36.5 for loss), 11.5 sacks – although it’s worth remembering that Watt only played for three. seasons. Based on the West Liberty site, Betz also has a significant height disadvantage (6-0 vs. Watt 6-5) and weighs slightly less than the NFL star.
