Bismarck's Carson Wentz helped bring the Lombardi Trophy through the streets of Philly and he was one of the speakers to the massive crowd gathered to celebrate the Eagles first Super Bowl Championship.

"You truly are the best football fans in the world and you make it a joy and a pleasure to play for you. From the moment I got here I knew this was a special place. A special locker room, a special organization, special coaching and some seriously special fans and I knew it wouldn't take long until we were standing up here and here we are today as World Champions!" said Carson Wentz, Eagles quarterback.

The parade is not the only big thing on Carson's to-do list today. He's replacing Vice President Mike Pence as the keynote speaker at the National Prayer Breakfast dinner. It's an all-day event in Washington,D.C. where global leaders meet every year.

Wentz also got engaged earlier this week.
