Christian NFL quarterback leaves a huge tip in visit to hometown bar

Carson Wentz may be an NFL star — but he hasn’t forgotten where he came from.

The 23-year-old Philadelphia Eagles quarterback went back to his hometown of Fargo, North Dakota, the first week of October. While he was visiting, he and a group of friends ran up quite the tab at the local watering hole, Herds and Horns.

“He just wanted to hang out shoot some pool and play some darts with his buddies and just relax and have a good time,” Jesse Vitagliano, who was with Wentz, told WTXF-TV in Philadelphia.

Wentz reportedly not only paid the $1,000 bill he and others racked up, he also left an impressive tip for the wait staff: $500, to be exact.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reported last month that Carson is a Christian who has a “Proverbs 3:5-6″ tattoo on one of his biceps, an “Isaiah 41:10″ tattoo on his back. He also has an “A01,” or “Audience of One,” tat on his wrist, the newspaper reported.
