WASHINGTON D.C. - Super Bowl Champion and Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz was a guest speaker at the National Prayer Breakfast dinner Thursday, Feb. 8, in Washington, D.C.

Wentz was named as the keynote speaker, replacing Vice President Mike Pence who was at the Olympic opening ceremonies in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

North Dakota Rep. Kevin Cramer told The Forum of Fargo-Moorhead that Wentz’s speech to the 2,500 people attending the dinner was "remarkable."

“He absolutely touched every heart in this place tonight,” Cramer said.

Earlier in the day, Wentz, along with his teammates, took part in the Eagles' Super Bowl parade in Philadelphia.
