What's Happening At Eagles-Colts

• Sunday's game is presented by 94WYSP and SPORTSRADIO 610 WIP.

Fan Featured on Sunday's Season Ticket: Sunday's featured fan is William Tolbert from Bala Cynwyd, PA. William is the definition of a true American and Eagles fan. While serving in the US Navy, William was stationed on board a nuclear powered submarine. Nearly every day, William would climb onto a pier and sing the Eagles fight song as loudly as possible. Every surrounding boat knew what it meant to be an Eagles fan. During a game against the Vikings in 2004, William heard his name announced over the loudspeaker. The Captain directed him into the radio room. Not knowing what to expect, William put on the headphones and heard the play-by-play for the game. William happily listened to all four quarters until the game ended with the Eagles on top. The Captain was so inspired by his loyalty to the team, he allowed William to listen to the post-game.

- Throughout the game, messages thanking military members for their services featuring Eagles cheerleaders, players and fans will be played on the videoboards.
