EverythingTop10 is proud to present, “The
Top 10 Things You Didn’t Know About Carson Wentz!” #10. He is a devout Christian. His faith in Christ is one of the most important
elements of his life. In fact, he considers his faith the biggest
influence on his football life. According to teammates, he has never been
seen before cursing his fate or regretting decisions. He is quoted as saying he plays not necessarily
to please the fans, but for his faith and to please the Lord. His faith helps him see the bigger picture
and focus on what he considers important. This is also one of the biggest reasons why
he launched the AO1 Foundation, a charity dedicated to uplifting the lives of communities
through a focus on Christianity. #9. Wentz was a three-sport star in high school. He was a very versatile player in high school,
a star across three sports. He played quarterback and defensive back for
Bismarck Century High School, leading his school to an 8-3 record and to the state semifinals. He was also a starter for the school baseball
team for three years, and was part of the runner’s up team in the state championships
in 2010. He also played the forward-center position
for their number 1 ranked state basketball team. #8. He is good friends with Mike Trout. Friendships across sports is not unique, but
the bromance between Wentz and Trout is deeper than ever. Trout is one of the most successful Major
League Baseball players, a three-time most valuable player and a winner of multiple awards. Trout and Wentz are often seen hanging out
together, engaging in such hobbies as hunting birds. They have also publicly exchanged presents,
many of them in-game. Trout is a devout football fan and long-term
season ticket holder for the Eagles. #7. Wentz comes from an athletic family. He is not the only sports star in his family. His brother Zach was a starting pitcher and
infielder for the North Dakota State baseball team, and was part of a team that put together
40 wins in 2012, in the process setting career records for games played, doubles, and hits. His cousin Connor played tight end from 2013
to 2015 for North Dakota State. The family sports history also goes back a
generation. His father also played linebacker at Division
II Northern State in South Dakota in the 1980s. #6. He has never gotten a B in any of his classes. He was so smart and dedicated to his studies
that he claims he never got a B in any of his classes, only As, both in high school
and college. He was also so dedicated to football, that
his girlfriend at the time once caught him watching game film on his phone under the
dinner table while they were on a date. Because of this incident, his then girlfriend
didn’t hesitate to take his phone away on date nights. #5. Wentz once wrote about being a pro football
player as a kid. He spoke about this in an article for the
Players’ Tribune, describing how things have come full circle for him now as a pro
football player. In the article, he described how growing up
in North Dakota helped mold him into the football player he is today. #4. He is married to Maddie Oberg. He was for a long time linked with his high
school sweetheart Melissa Uhrich. Their relationship was once called “The
Perfect North Dakota Relationship” by the New York Post. He, however, broke up with her and moved on,
proposing to Maddie Oberg in February of 2018. She said “yes” and they married later
in the year, and are now expecting their first child. He made the announcement on Twitter and Instagram
around Thanksgiving, posting a cheesy photo of their family dog holding the ultrasound
photo. #3. Wentz once helped save a young boy’s life. He has had his fair share of charitable actions
off the field, most notably his work with the charity organization AO1 foundation. However, none trump the story of how he once
helped save a young boy’s life after a training camp. The boy, Max Shott, was a young fan whose
symptoms became clear after his parents watched a video featuring Wentz in a previous training
session. Wentz had granted a cancer patient, Lukas,
his last wish, meeting him after initially sending him a video. This video caught the eye of Max’s parents,
who found a lot of overlap in Lukas and Max’s symptoms. This video prompted them to seek medical care,
where they later found that their son had cancer and eventually sought treatment. #2. His favorite player is Brett Favre. When asked about his favorite player, he does
not hesitate to mention his hero Brett Favre. Favre is considered an NFL legend, and is
remembered for his records and loyalty to the Green Bay Packers. It is easy to see why he loves him. They are both known for playing the quarterback
position with incredible commitment. Favre once retired to save his team and fans
from the pain and anguish of having their season ruined. #1. Wentz was the valedictorian of his high school
class. He graduated from Bismarck Century High School
in 2011, but what many people do not know is that he was the valedictorian of his class. Many athletes with such promise are often
happy to move on to their chosen colleges without much fuss, but Wentz was a standout
student, and he delivered the closing speech at his graduation. He was also part of the national honors society
in high school. That’s all folks! Please leave a like if you enjoyed the video
