Courage Interviews with Philadelphia Eagles Players

St. Davids, PA, Jan 16, 2018 – As the Philadelphia Eagles ramped up for playoffs, several players took time out of their schedule to talk about Courage with Eastern University and Faith on the Field Show. Players Zach Ertz, Torrey Smith, and Steven Means spoke on a variety of topics, including the courage it takes to live out their faith publicly as professional athletes. The players also emphasized the way their close-knit community with other Christians on the team continually bolsters their courage.

These video interviews were not the first time Eastern University has helped share the stories of Christian Eagles players. This past September, Eastern University hosted its second live Faith on the Field event, a recorded interview for ESPN's radio show by the same name. The show, which featured Philadelphia Eagles Carson Wentz, Trey Burton, and Stefen Wisniewski, drew a live audience of close to 2,000 people to Eastern’s campus, despite the rainy evening.

View the event recap here:
