Carson Wentz is the quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles. He was selected No. 2 overall in the 2016 draft, and he has started each of the 57 games he has played since. He earned a Pro Bowl selection in 2017 but was unable to play due to an ACL injury earlier that season, which also kept him out as the Eagles went on to win Super Bowl LII.
Wentz battled injuries in 2018 as well, appearing in only 11 games, but he started all 16 regular-season games in 2019 and got to play in his first NFL playoff game. He enters his fifth season as one of the NFL’s best young quarterbacks.
In the summer of 2017, Wentz started his Audience of One Foundation, which is dedicated to “uplifting individuals and communities around the world by demonstrating God’s love for His people.” It is made up of three primary ministries: Thy Kingdom Crumb (a food truck that distributes free food); Outdoor Ministry (hunting and fishing trips for kids); and the Haiti Sports Complex (sports facilities in Haiti).
Wentz is also a married man and soon-to-be father. Shortly after winning the Super Bowl, Wentz proposed to his girlfriend, Maddie. The two were married in July 2018, and they are expecting their first child, a girl.
On this episode of the podcast, we talk to Carson and Maddie about marriage, what Maddie’s Sundays are like watching her husband on the field, how Christ is at the center of their marriage, and the excitement surrounding their upcoming baby girl’s arrival.
