J.J. Watt has humorous reaction to seeing college football look-alike

J.J. Watt has humorous reaction to seeing college football look-alike

J.J. Watt has discovered his doppelganger. And the Cardinals defensive end had a hilarious response after finding his look-alike.

Said person is Matt Betz, a defensive lineman at West Liberty (W. Va.) University. Per the Random College Athletes Twitter account — an excellent follow — Betz played for the Hilltoppers from 2008-13, which briefly coincided with Watt’s college career. The latter spent a year in residence at Wisconsin in 2008 after transferring from Central Michigan, before playing two seasons for the Badgers in 2009 and ’10.

The resemblance is definitely noticeable — though, 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 and Watt’s resemblance.

Per West Liberty’s team site, Betz finished his playing career as a redshirt senior in 2012 (after redshirting in 2011). He is credited with playing in 40 games over his five-year career, totaling 114 tackles (21.5 for loss), 13.5 sacks, two forced fumbles, four fumble recoveries and three passes defensed.

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