Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz has signed an endorsement contract with Sanford Health.

In a press release from Sanford Health, the health system says the former North Dakota State University signal caller and Sanford have a long-running relationship, dating back to his college career years in Bismarck, North Dakota.

“Sanford has been there for me during my journey as a quarterback, and I truly appreciate the support over the years. I’m very honored to be partnering with the great people at Sanford – we intend to work together to give back and support the communities in our great region,” said Wentz.

“Athletes of Carson’s caliber and success don’t come along that often. The pride that is in all of us as fans runs particularly strong in those who know him and cared for him. He’s part of the Sanford family, and we are incredibly honored to continue our close relationship with him,” said Bruce Piatt, M.D., of Sanford Orthopedics and Sports Medicine and NDSU’s team physician.

Wentz joins several other elite professional athletes with local ties who have chosen Sanford POWER as their exclusive sports medicine partner, including hockey great Matt Cullen of Moorhead, Minnesota; Minnesota Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway of Mount Vernon, South Dakota; and professional basketball player Mike Miller of Mitchell, South Dakota.
