Distance learning sucks if you don't have a dope computer to stay connected in school ... and Deshaun Watson knows it.
That's why the Houston Texans star QB teamed up with Reliant Energy to hand out $175,000 in tech Wednesday to students who need it!

Most Houston area schools have opted to begin the school year virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic ... creating tough situations for some families in dire financial straits.
Watson and Reliant decided to help out by working with the Comp-U-Dopt organization -- which specializes in "providing technology access and education to underserved youth."
Comp-U-Dopt says the $175k donation from Watson and Reliant will allow 500 STUDENTS to receive computers, which they can keep. How great is that!?
"Reliant will also fund afterschool student programming with Comp-U-Dopt for the next three years," the org says.
Watson didn't just cut a check -- he personally went down to the giveaway point in Houston and helped deliver the equipment to the families who needed it.
The 24-year-old baller is big in the community in Houston.
This March, he helped feed hospitality workers who lost their jobs due to COVID19. He also donated his first NFL check to help Hurricane Harvey victims back in 2017.
