During week four, the Philadelphia Eagles had a bye week. During his week off, former NDSU quarterback Carson Wentz returned native North Dakota and had a pretty good week. Wentz watched his former team, the NDSUBison beat Illinois State 31-10. He shot a commercial for a truck accessories business. Scheels is smiling, they can't keep his jersey's in stock.
Mike Greger, CSNPhilly.com --- The place has become pretty synonymous with Wentz these days. ESPN and NFL Network have both broadcast from there. And Wentz held a private party in their back room last Saturday night, right after watching his alma mater roll to a 31-10 win over Illinois State. The party was a low-key affair, but waiters and bartenders were still swapping stories days later.For the common everyday people like myself, I was pleased to know that Wentz shot a really nice buck with his bow. Finally, as you can see from above, Wentz left a really big tip at one of the local bars that he visited. The Carson Wentz phenomenon is growing with each day in North Dakota.
"As I was waiting on him, I had to look up. He is so tall,” said Rachel, a junior at NDSU who works as a server at Herd & Horns. "He was very humble, especially as a guest. He didn’t treat anyone like they were below him or anything.”
(In case you're wondering, Wentz picked up the entire tab, $1,000 and left a $500 tip. He was whisked off by his cousin in a 1996 Chevy pickup truck. No frills.)
Next week, the Vikings and the Eagles will play in Philadelphia, PA. It should be an exciting day, Wentz will take on the quarterback that he replaced in Philly.
