Watson says he hopes to come back and play football in Jerusalem's new stadium.
Deshaun Watson, quarterback for the Houston Texans, is in the midst of a tour of Israel that he describes as “life-changing.”
The NFL star and devout Christian told reporters that his first trip to the Holy Land has had a profound impact on him.
The Times of Israel reports that from the rooftop of the Tower of David Museum, he said:
“It’s definitely a life-changing experience for you to really feel the energy of Israel and especially Jerusalem. It’s made my spiritual side a lot stronger.”
