Kudu’s to Carson Wentz, the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback, now so much for his on field football performance, but for his gift giving.
According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Wentz gave his offensive lineman personalized (their shirt numbers on the butts of the guns) Beretta shotguns for Christmas.
Wentz, himself an avid hunter, spent the holiday weekend hunting ducks and geese in New Jersey with American League MVP Mike Trout as per NJ.com’s Eliot Shorr-Parks sports reporter.
Said Eagles guard Allen Barbre, “This is an awesome gun. I’m excited about it. I don’t know how to shoot it, thought. But it’s pretty nice.”
Rookie guard, Isaac Seumato, said he has no hunting experience but is willing to learn. “But I’m more than thankful for it. It looks sweet. Carson said he’ll teach me how to use it and all that good stuff,” said Seumato to ESPN.
Wentz who hails from the Dakota’s, grew up hunting as do many kids in that hunting-rich state where pheasant hunting is the best in the country.
