Philadelphia Eagles Quarterback Carson Wentz had a different type of warm-up before Thursday’s preseason game against the Miami Dolphins.
Handles Franklin, Harlem Globetrotters, and Harrisburg native gave Wentz a “crash course” on basketball tricks the exhibition team regulars.
Franklin is an enormous Eagles fan and follows the team as his own team, the Globetrotters, travels the world. The basketball team is known for mixing athletics, theater, and comedy and will begin their next tour in October. Catch the Harlem Globetrotters in the Philadelphia area March 2018.
The tricky practice may have helped as Wentz finished 6 out of 10 passes for 129 yards and 2 touchdowns.
