As a freshman, he was 5 ft 8 in (1.73 m) in height, grew to 6 ft 5 in (1.96 m) as a senior, and graduated in 2011 as valedictorian of his class.
Wentz is a Christian.Wentz said he found what he calls his “internal perspective” while in college at North Dakota State. He said he grew up going to church with his family, but not because of his spirituality.”It was just one of those things I did, honestly,” he said. “It was more of a family thing, more or less.”
Carson Wentz is an avid hunter during the offseason, and frequently visits his home state of North Dakota. He is particularly noted for his friendship with Major League Baseball player Mike Trout and gave him a ball as a gift after a touchdown in a win against the Cowboys on January 1, 2017.
Carson had the eye surgery in the offseason to ensure that he does not need to wear contact lenses.”I had just finished my laser surgery,” Winsch said in an interview. “It was a great help to me when you woke up in the morning and did not need to wear glasses to see things‘’.
