Eagles Trey Burton says faith is still the most important thing after winning Super Bowl

Trey Burton will go down as a Philadelphia Eagles legend, after he was the player to throw the touchdown pass on a trick play called “Philly Special” to Nick Foles in Super Bowl LII to help bring a Super Bowl title to the city of brotherly love.

On Wednesday, after returning to Philadelphia, Trey was asked how his faith would help keep him humble during a time when many would be praising him for his accomplishments on the field.

“My faith will help me make sure that Jesus is the most important thing out of all of this and that He gets all the glory,” Burton said. “I’m just a vessel for what He’s trying to accomplish here in this city.”

Burton said the moment after the game when he was able to celebrate with his family was special and it truly helped him keep his priorities in their proper place.

“My faith is number one, and my family is right behind it and then football comes after that. I want to always make sure my priorities are in order.”

Burton and the Eagles celebrated on Thursday with the Super Bowl parade down Broad Street in Philadelphia.
