WWE NXT: Edges appear on NXT
Jalen Hurts went one step further to help a family of Eagles fans improve their living conditions while battling childhood cancer.
Jalen Hurts was a class from college until his days in the NFL.
The Eagles quarterback once again proved what a good guy he is by helping a needy family in Pennsylvania.
Hurts has partnered with Alex’s Lemonade Stand to improve the lives of a family whose 7-year-old son is battling cancer.
Hurts first approached Alex’s lemonade stand with an offer to support her work. They put him in touch with the needy family. He visited the family at their home and played tag with the children before handing them a check for $ 30,000 to help them find a new home.
Jalen Hurts shapes the Eagles community
The Eagles drafted Hurts of Oklahoma in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft, and he eventually started the team’s final four games of the season.
He threw for 1,061 yards and six touchdowns while throwing four interceptions. Unfortunately, the team went 1-3 in its starts despite playing well enough to open the door to a Philadelphia quarterback controversy. It was controversial that the then head coach Doug Pederson came on in the fourth quarter of the season finale in Nate Sudfeld to look at the quarterback instead of giving Hurts the chance to win a victory.
A decision has to be made between reigning starter Carson Wentz, who went 3-8-1 on his starts, and Hurts, who gave the offense a much-needed spark when he was in the game. This time, however, it won’t be Pederson who makes that choice. The Eagles fired their head coach and installed Colts OC Nick Sirianni.
One thing is certain, Hurts has the character of being successful in life, regardless of whether or not he gets the starting job for the Eagles.
