The wait is almost over. Hometown star Carson Wentz will take the field pre-season according to the  Philadelphia Eagles.

The former Bison will take the field for his debut on Thursday (Aug. 11) night in the pre-season opener against Tampa Bay.

According to head coach Doug Pederson, Wentz will play "a lot" in the second half of the game.

I'm sure a bunch of hometown folks will be taping the debut of the Bismarck native.
