Jalen Hurts is a class act.
If you’ve been following the 24-year-old Philadelphia Eagles quarterback since his college days, then you already knew this.
We all saw how well he handled the situation after he got benched at Alabama for Tua Tagovailoa, and ultimately decided to transfer to Oklahoma.
And now, here we are four years later, and the maturity has not left him.
After the Eagles’ tough loss in the Super Bowl last night, losing 38-35 to the Kansas City Chiefs, Hurts’ maturity was on full display while he was asked a question by a young fan and podcast host of The Giovanni Show.
The 15-year-old asked Hurts what lesson he learned from the loss, and how it will prepare him for the next game.
“Man you wanna cherish these moments. Cherish these moments with the people you’ve come so far with. You know, your family, your loved ones, your teammates, and your peers that you do it with and do it for…
I would say I’m so proud of this team for everything we’ve been able to overcome. Obviously, we had a big time goal we wanted to accomplish and we came up short. I think the beautiful part about it is everyone experiences different pains, experiences different agonies of life.
But, you decide if you want to learn from it. You decide if you want it to be a teachable moment and I know what I want to do.”
Hurts could’ve easily brushed off the young fan, and had a bad attitude after the difficult loss, but instead, he took the time to give a well-thought-out response.
And on top of that, the young quarterback even showed more maturity than his own head coach, Nick Sirianni, who was seen waving at and taunting the Chiefs’ defense. Hurts proceeded to push Sirianni’s arm back down.
Wise beyond his years, no doubt:
