I like this guy. He just won the Super Bowl, the biggest sporting event in the US. He was voted the Most Valuable Player in that game. He beat one of the biggest names in American football. Yet he remained humble. He went to be with his family after will is likely his biggest sporting victory. He credits the others on his team. Nick Foles understands what’s really important.

Paolo Bandini, writing for The Guardian:

“It’s just a great honour to be up here and accept this on behalf of the Philadelphia Eagles,” said Foles. “I’m fortunate to be part of a great team, great players, great coaching staff and I think just the play of the last couple of weeks was just a team thing. We kept working, kept game-planning, kept talking to [head coach] Doug [Pederson] about what I liked, and him and all the coaching staff kept building it around what we were doing.

“And then it was just a reflection of the execution on the field, and pulling for one another just like we have been all year. So, in that it wasn’t necessarily me, it was everyone around me that did an amazing job.”


I’m not perfect, I’m not Superman. I might be in the NFL, and we might have just won the Super Bowl, but I still have daily struggles … And that’s really just been the message, simple. If something’s going on in your life and you’re struggling, embrace it, because you’re growing.”
