FARGO - Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz was featured in a six-minute segment on ESPN this past weekend.

The Bismarck-raised Wentz talks about his North Dakota State playing days and several former Bison teammates and head coach Chris Klieman offer insights on the 6-foot-5 quarterback. Steven Glasser, pastor of First Assembly Church in Fargo, talks about Wentz's desire to speak to the congregation.

The Chuck Anderson family of Jamestown lead off the segment when they visited the Eagles practice facility.

Wentz, by the way, threw four touchdown passes Sunday in a 51-23 rout of Denver.
