Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles sure seems like he's the real deal. His rags-to-riches story over the past couple of seasons
proved that, but just in case you needed even more evidence, take a moment to listen to his post-Super Bowl victory speech to the media below.
Instead of talking about the huge upset that the team just accomplished, Foles instead to focus on the effect that failure has had in his life. He talked about overcoming failure and what he learned along the way, about getting back up after you fall and about how even though he and the rest of his teammates are now Super Bowl champions, they still have their daily struggles.
It's really refreshing to hear this from a professional athlete in this day and age, when so many athletes instead choose to focus on the glitz and glamor of being celebrities. With this speech, Foles definitely proved how grounded he is.
