Wentz Saves High School Class From Exam


With a simple tweet, quarterback Carson Wentz helped ease the workload of a local high school sophomore.

Collin Hurley from West Chester Rustin High School tweeted at the quarterback a picture of a handshake agreement with his teacher. If Wentz either liked or retweeted his plea by June 4, the class would not have to take a final exam.

Well, Wentz stepped up and delivered with time to spare.

It's a little surprising that Wentz would help out in this case. He was the valedictorian of his class at Bismarck Century High School. At North Dakota State, he maintained a cumulative 4.0 GPA through his senior year. In addition, Wentz was named the 2015 CoSIDA Academic All-American of the Year and also earned MVFC first-team All-Academic and CoSIDA Academic All-American first-team honors in 2014 and 2015.

It is, however, fitting that he did this on #WentzDay.
