Houston Texans Star Warns Youth-Athletes About Social-Media Presence – by Bryan Toporek of Education Week
"Houston Texans star defensive end J.J. Watt, the NFL’s reigning Defensive Player of the Year, offered some sound advice to student-athletes about their social-media presence at the Gatorade Player of the Year awards in Los Angeles on Friday.In an interview with MaxPreps.com, Watt warned student-athletes to be extremely wary of what they post on their social-media accounts, given how quickly a poorly conceived post can spiral out of control.“Read each tweet about 95 times before sending it,” Watt said. “Look at every Instagram post about 95 times before you send it. A reputation takes years and years and years to build, and it takes one press of a button to ruin. So don’t let that happen to you.“If you use it properly, you can use it unbelievably, and you can do great things with social media,” he continued. “You can interact with your fans, and have a lot of fun, and share with the world what you’re doing. But just be very smart about it.”"
