JJ is a superstar NFL player and celebrity off the field in every way.

Derek paved his own path to the NFL.

And TJ is also on the road to success in the Watt family business of football.

Three brothers. All from Pewaukee High School. All have starred at the University of Wisconsin, and it's likely all three will play on Sundays in the NFL.

How did this happen?

With Watt's Houston Texans playing the Green Bay Packers this Sunday at Lambeau Field (JJ won't be playing after he was placed on injured reserve earlier this year), the Lake Country Reporter has multiple stories on the Watt family this week that looks back at the trio's days at Pewaukee High School, how the Pewaukee program has continued to thrive since their arrival, the coach who saw them grow up in town, how their mother has helped build the brand and how another generation of Watts started it all.
