Eagles QB Carson Wentz finishes memorable week sharing at National Prayer Breakfast dinner

It’s been quite the week for injured Eagles QB Carson Wentz.

First, he saw his team win the Super Bowl, upsetting the New England Patriots.

Two days later, he got engaged to his girlfriend Maddie.

On Thursday morning, Wentz joined his teammates for the Super Bowl parade in Philadelphia.

Finally, on Thursday Night,  he was a guest speaker for the National Prayer Breakfast dinner in place of U.S. Vice President Mike Pence where he apparently stole the show with a passionate speech on leadership.

North Dakota Rep. Kevin Cramer told The Forum of Fargo-Moorhead that Wentz’s speech to the 2,500 people attending the dinner was “remarkable.”

“He absolutely touched every heart in this place tonight,” Cramer said.

The grind never stops, as Wentz will continue his rehab from a knee injury and attempt to make it back as the Eagles starter on opening day t0 2017 when they hoist the first Super Bowl championship banner in its teams history.
