Big moments are when Nick Foles just seems to step up to the plate.
After nearly six years of guiding the Philadelphia Eagles to their first-ever Lombardi Trophy–winning Super Bowl 52 title, Foles added two additional unique pieces to his trophy room: two gold medals in the pickleball competition.
At the PPA Finals in San Clemente, California, Foles became victorious in two distinct divisions.

Journey Of Nick Foles
Although Foles hasn’t made an official announcement about leaving football, he has a new sport that he can excel in if his time on the field is up. That’s obviously bad news for his other PPA pickleball competition.
Six seasons ago, Foles, an 88th-overall third-round selection by the Eagles in 2012, authored one of the greatest underdog tales in NFL history. In 2016, the journeyman quarterback gave retirement some thought before joining the Kansas City Chiefs in free agency to support Alex Smith.
Foles rejoined the Eagles in 2017 as Carson Wentz’s backup quarterback. The Eagles had to use quarterback Nick Foles the remainder of the season after the latter sustained an ACL rupture in Week 14 against the Los Angeles Rams.
