PHILADELPHIA-It was only seven years ago when Carson Wentz was a senior at Bismarck Century High School. It was only three years ago when Wentz was celebrating a national championship with North Dakota State's football team.

Thursday, amidst an estimated 2 million fans lining the streets of Philadelphia, Wentz was part of a parade that celebrated the Philadelphia Eagles' Super Bowl victory over the New England Patriots last Sunday. Even though he did not play in the Super Bowl because of his knee injury, Wentz was on the bus that overlooked the huge crowd and spoke at the end of parade on the "Rocky" steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

With fans chanting "MVP," Wentz said: "I hope you all can get used to this."
