On July 25, the Philadelphia Eagles will do something they’ve never done before: begin an NFL season as the defending Super Bowl champions.
For quarterback Carson Wentz, he’ll enter this year once again as the starting quarterback. But this year will be different from the previous two. That’s because Wentz is now a married man.
On Sunday, Wentz married his girlfriend Maddie Oberg in East Rockhill Township, N.J.
Such a blessing to finally get to marry my best friend! It was an incredible day and God has his fingerprints all over our story! I’m a lucky man with one amazing wife 🙌🏻 #WentzUponATime pic.twitter.com/6N99DgQ3NV

“Such a blessing to finally get to marry my best friend,” Wentz wrote of his wedding on Twitter. “It was an incredible day and God has his fingerprints all over our story! I’m a lucky man with one amazing wife.”
Wentz, 25, is still recovering from knee surgery after tearing both is ACL and MCL in a December 2017 game against the Rams. Although he has not been cleared to play in an actual game yet, many believe that when September comes, No. 9 will be under center for the Eagles starting in Week 1.
“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
Verse of the day & also my first tattoo! Great reminder that God is always with you & will lift you up!
