Eagles and young Carson Wentz superfan Giovanni Hamilton took to the internet on Thursday, making an emotional video just a short time after it was announced that Wentz was heading via trade to the Colts.
The 13-year-old and Wentz had a very special friendship, going back to training camp in 2019 when he finally got to meet Wentz and told him that he was his hero.
Wentz and Hamilton, who has a rare genetic disorder, maintained a friendship these last two years, and Hamilton said in a new video that he will continue to root for Wentz despite him not wearing Eagles green anymore.
Here’s a video from Wentz to Hamilton from December of this year after Wentz was benched for rookie quarterback Jalen Hurts.
You’re the man Giovanni ?? I appreciate and look up to you! Never change man!
And don’t worry— God’s got a plan for me and I’ll keep pushing through this like I always do— trusting HIM and giving it everything I got! https://t.co/2RkNJq1z3M

Now that it’s official and Wentz will be wearing Colts blue, Hamilton went online Thursday after he heard about the deal and shared his feelings about the trade while trying to keep it all together.
