J.J. Watt named spokesman for American Family
Wisconsin native, former Badger and NFL star defensive end J.J. Watt will be one of two spokesmen for Madison-based American Family Insurance.
Watt is a three-time Pro Bowl player with the Houston Texans and was an All-American, All-Big Ten and All Academic Big-Ten defensive end during his time playing for the Wisconsin Badgers.
“American Family is a company I am very familiar with from my days growing up in Wisconsin, and I am excited to have this opportunity with them,” Watt said in a release.
NBA star Kevin Durrant also signed on as a spokesperson.
Watt is president and founder of the Justin J. Watt Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing after-school opportunities for children so they can get involved in athletics in a safe environment.
Seattle Seahawks quarterback and former Badger Russell Wilson was an American Family spokesperson in 2013 and 2014.
