Carson Wentz receives Eagles’ Ed Block Courage Award

New, comments

Congrats to No. 11.

NFL: Washington Redskins at Philadelphia Eagles Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Philadelphia Eagles starting quarterback Carson Wentz has been named the team’s recipient of the Ed Block Courage Award for the 2018 NFL season.

The annual award honors “those National Football League players who exemplify commitments to the principles of sportsmanship and courage” and is determined by a vote from a team’s players.

Wentz was an obvious candidate for this award given how he put in a lot of hard work to fight back from the serious ACL and LCL injuries he suffered in December 2017.

Wentz is coming off the worst game of his career but the 25-year-old is clearly talented and that bodes well for the Eagles’ future. So does the fact that his teammates have a lot of respect for him.
