The Story Of My Jersey Number: Jason Kelce


What's in a number?

Well, funny you ask. For many in the Eagles' locker room, their jersey numbers become part of their everyday lives, it becomes their identities. For others? It's just the way it worked out.

Here's Jason Kelce:

"The significance of No. 62 is that when I made it to the NFL this is the number that was given to me and I am honored to wear it. Growing up I kind of liked the No. 13 for the sports that I played. But I had a football coach in middle school that once said to me, 'The player makes the number, not the other way around.' Since then, I've taken the number that was handed to me. I have an identity with 62 and I'm going to have that forever."
