Jalen Hurts, the quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles, has his eyes fixed on Christ and says, “God Is Everything, and He Is Worthy of Praise.”
The Philadelphia Eagles’ starting quarterback wants to be “known as someone who makes a difference” in the lives of people away from the field of play and a role model for the young fans who look up to him.
The Eagles’ hot start may be attributed in part to the great performance of quarterback Jalen Hurts, who was promoted to the starting role at the conclusion of his rookie season in 2020 and then took over the starting job for good the following year, 2021, when he led Philadelphia to the playoffs. Two games into the season, the Eagles have the best offensive in the NFL and are tied for first place in the NFC East with the New York Giants.
Hurts, a former quarterback for both Alabama and Oklahoma in college football, claims that his Christian religion is the source of his motivation.
According to Hurts’s interview with CBS Sports, “it’s something that I’ve really grown in and recognized” God is “everything” and “He is deserving of praise.” You must make Him the focal point of your life. That’s how I see it too. I’ve had the good fortune to develop, gain wisdom, and mature. And I know that the Lord has been with me every step of the way.
According to CBS Sports, Hurts’ former high school assistant principal Alan Smith called him up last summer asking if he could help out by buying “three or four” outfits for a Houston-based AAU basketball team that was short on cash. And that’s not all that hurt did. Over the course of a few months, the AAU program spent almost $15,000 on new gear, from “jerseys to sneakers to jogging shorts to athletic bags,” according to CBS Sports.
Three times over the offseason, Hurts returned to his hometown.
‘I just want to set the correct example for the child who does look up to me, the kid that does want to be someone great and accomplish something amazing with themselves,’ Hurts told CBS Sports. It’s possible that the young person in question doesn’t hold me in very high esteem and would rather look up to someone else. I want people to think about Jalen Hurts and say, “That’s how I can do it!” when they hear my name.
“… I keep God at the core of everything,” he said. All the glory goes to God. I depend entirely on Him. The way I see it, everything happens for a reason. … All I want is to be an inspiration and to leave a mark on the world. That’s not out of the ordinary, you know. A daily occurrence in my mind.”
