Former Wisconsin standout and current NFL superstar J.J. Watt surprised his soon-to-be retiring fourth grade teacher Monday morning.

Mrs. Keith, who Watt called “one of my favorite teachers of all time,” is retiring at the end of the year after 41 years. To celebrate the teacher who told the four-time Pro Bowler and three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year that he could be a Badger and make the NFL, Watt brought a retirement cake, a pair of shoes and an invitation to Houston for his Charity Classic Softball Game this summer.
