HOUSTON -- Teen hearts across southeast Texas are broken after Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt said that he won t go to prom with fans.

Several young women started campaigns to make J.J. their prom date.

He won over hearts across the nation after proposing to a 6-year-old girl. But, Wednesday night the football took to Facebook to tell his fans that he won t be able to take them to prom.

Ok, I feel like I need to address this. I see all of the prom invitations and I am flattered, but unfortunately I cannot take you all, Watt posted on his Facebook page. Love you guys and appreciate your unbelievable support. Meet me at Reliant on gamedays this fall and we'll dance there.
