Not only is Houston Texans star Andre Johnson an All-Pro wide receiver, but he also makes a pretty good Santa Claus.

Johnson recently continued his awesome annual tradition of acting as "Andre Claus" in a local toy store. It's the 33-year-old's way of giving back and making sure kids enjoy the holidays.

This year, Johnson gave 11 kids the opportunity to get everything they wanted for Christmas. The Texans wideout gave them 80 seconds to fill their carts with as much stuff as they wanted.

The best part: Johnson paid for all of the toys. 

As you might imagine, the carts got pretty full.

The receipts from the shopping spree were pretty crazy.

As a very successful professional athlete, Johnson can afford to give back. The holiday season isn't easy on everyone, but he did what he could to spread the love and touch the lives of several kids.
