In his first season as the Philadelphia Eagles’ starting quarterback, Jalen Hurts has been a revelation on the field. Hurts wants to give back to Historically Black Colleges and Universities each week this NFL season, thanks to his on-field success.
Each week Jalen Hurts uses his on-field performance to benefit Historically Black Colleges and Universities
Hurts teamed up with FedEx and the NFL Players Association to symbolise the future generation of NFL quarterbacks, who are putting up big numbers both on the field and in the air. Hurts, who has thrown for 1,167 yards and rushed for 226 yards with eight total touchdowns (seven passing, one rushing) after four games, is at the vanguard of these dual-threat quarterbacks. Hurts is tied for third in total offence in the NFL this season with Matthew Stafford and Tom Brady. In his first eight starts, he has 2,462 yards of total offence, following only Cam Newton (2,603) and Patrick Mahomes (2,591) in NFL history. Hurts told CBS Sports, “I’m really excited to work with them on this launch.” “They do a lot of fantastic things, and the HBCU community jumped out to me because I’m a strong believer in service.
I have a programme in place that donates to HBCUs for quarterbacks and running backs who win awards at the collegiate level. This money is also used to provide scholarships.” The funds will go towards need-based scholarships for worthy students, with $2,000 going to the winning quarterback and $2,000 going to the winning running back for a total of $4,000 in scholarships. While Hurts serves as an ambassador on the field, FedEx will work directly with the NFLPA to determine which schools will receive weekly awards. “All I’m trying to do is get everyone excited,” Hurts explained. “In today’s world, quarterbacks must be able to move both on the ground and in the air. I’m only attempting to get fans to vote. I want to give back to the NFL since it is a fan-driven organisation.” Every Monday through Wednesday, fans can vote for the NFL FedEx Air and Ground Players of the Week. The three nominees will be announced early next week, and Hurts will be vying for a spot on the list. More Eagles fans will vote if Hurts is nominated.With a smile, Hurts remarked, “It’s a really passionate fanbase, and they want to win — therefore they’ll want me to win.” “In Philly, that’s what they’re all about!”
