He introduced himself to the college football world as the Alabama Crimson Tide’s first true freshman starting quarterback in over 30 years and held the job until the second half of the 2017 National Championship Game, when Tua Tagovailoa usurped him.
Hurts took his talents to Norman, Oklahoma, to play for head coach Lincoln Riley and the Oklahoma Sooners. He proved his talent by carving up Big 12 defenses enough to be named a Heisman Trophy finalist in 2019.
Naturally, the dual-threat QB’s next step was the NFL. His rebound season at Oklahoma was all the Philadelphia Eagles needed to see to draft him in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft. He sat behind Carson Wentz until Wentz played poor enough to give Hurts a shot at commanding the offense full time. He started the final four games of the season and proved himself as a passer and runner despite the Eagles going 1-3.
In 2021, Philly’s huddle is all his after Wentz was traded to the Indianapolis Colts.
That’s a record-breaking brief of Hurts’ football bio. But what about the man off the field? What about his personal life? His love life?
Let’s find out.
