Nick Foles gets another jersey placed in the Hall of Fame
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles gets another one of his jerseys on display in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
2018 has been one heck of a year for Philadelphia Eagles quarterback, Nick Foles. The wins just keep piling up for the NFL’s best backup quarterback. We’ll spare you the Super Bowl recap since we all know what Foles has done back in February. But just as a reminder, Nick Foles is the most recent Super Bowl MVP after defeating the New England Patriots 41-33 in Super Bowl LII.
For a backup, Foles has had quite the ride since December of 2017. During that time, he has been able to help accomplish clinching the NFC East, securing a first-round bye, winning an NFC Championship, and bringing the Vince Lombardi trophy to Philadelphia for the first time in franchise history.
Foles’ legendary story doesn’t stop after the Super Bowl, though. His newfound fame and success have continued to grow all throughout the spring and summertime. Just a couple of months back, Foles quickly released a book titled “Believe it: My Journey of Success, Failure, and overcoming the odds.” With the success of the book, Foles has become a New York Times bestseller and has decided that the revenue is no good for him. So instead, he decided to donate the money to charity. Winning, again.
Recently, Foles took the stage at the ESPY’s to claim his award for the best championship performance. In honor of Foles’ championship win, his alma mater decided to create a shrine at University of Arizona’s Jim Click Hall of Champions. Now, Foles can find himself in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio once again.
Foles holds a ‘special’ place in Canton:
This isn’t the first jersey that Foles has on display in Canton, Ohio. Back in 2013, the Eagles sent the white game-worn away jersey that Foles rocked during a seven-touchdown victory against the Oakland Raiders. We’re sure Eagles fans remember that game well since it was in the same year as Foles’ mind-blowing touchdown-to-interception ratio during his first stint with the Eagles.
It’s shocking to know that Foles would not keep perhaps the most essential game-worn jersey from his career to himself. Maybe he feels like it would be even more refreshing to see his own uniform in the Hall of Fame in multiple sections. The ‘Philly Special’ ball should be close to the No. 9 jersey anyway. After all, that may now be the most famous play in Eagles history.
