From backup QB to Super Bowl hero, here are 5 things to know about the 29-year-old football star.

Fresh off their first Super Bowl title, the Philadelphia Eagles arrived home to a hero's welcome on Monday afternoon, hours after overjoyed fans mobbed the streets in a sometimes unruly victory celebration almost 60 years in the making.

"Uh, to all the kids out there I just wanna say don't drink. you know, When alcohol's in your system you do dumb stuff".

Kevin Hart started Philadelphians' embarrassing celebrations early.

Chris Long, who is white, voiced support for his teammates' protests throughout the season. "I didn't really worry about the score, I didn't worry about the clock, I just played", he said. We're very informed about what goes on, and we're trying to continue to educate ourselves.

That's the lesson Nick Foles taught us over the past several weeks, and the lesson he reminded us of last night, as he stood before the podium reserved for the newest Super Bowl MVP-a place no one ever predicted he would be, perhaps not even he himself.


The quarterback was one of the Eagles' study leaders when he was on the team from 2012 to 2014 and served as a role model for some of the younger players. "I've never been here before, so there are normal nerves", he added. "Like I said, we're going to enjoy these next few days". I'm not anxious about my future right now, there'll be a time and a place to handle all that. I get to work with him every day. "I'm just living in the moment".

"I think the big thing that helped me was knowing that I didn't have to be Superman". He took over for Drew Bledsoe in Week 2 of the 2001 season and led the team to a 20-17 Super Bowl win over the St. Louis Rams.

Crashing the Super Bowl stage wasn't the only viral moment Hart had from the night. "He's a great quarterback and a big, big part of why this team won a championship".

"Shut up bitch, I ain't got socks on cuz I'm tipsy!"

As he said all last week, this journey was about the importance of faith, family and football in his life. "So much temptation in this world, so much going on with social media and the internet that you want to talk to them and address it and share all the weaknesses I have because I've fallen many times", Foles said.

No one on the Eagles sat or kneeled during the national anthem this season, but several players raised their fists in protest, including Malcolm Jenkins, Torrey Smith, and Rodney McLeod.
