Houston Texans' football star J.J. Watt will pay for the funerals of the 10 people killed in Friday's Texas school shooting.

Nine students and a teacher were killed and 10 other students were injured in the school shooting in Santa Fe, Texas.

Shortly after news of the shooting broke Friday, Watt tweeted, "Absolutely horrific."

Watt is well-known for his philanthropy in the Houston area. After Hurricane Harvey struck Texas last year, he raised millions of dollars for relief efforts. He was awarded the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award for his charity work.
