They were even more excited to learn that Jalen would start the game last weekend against the New Orleans Saints. Jalen went on to lead the Eagles to an upset win over the Saints, 24-21.

Jalen Hurts was a stand-out quarterback who played for the Channelview Falcons under the direction of the head coach, Averion Hurts, his father. In his senior year, he passed for 2,384 yards with 26 touchdown passes, and rushed for 1,391 yards and 25 touchdowns. He was named District 21-6A MVP in his junior year.

These multiple skills, passing and rushing, were evident in the game he played against the Saints, where he completed 17 of 30 passes for 167 yards, and rushed 18 times for 106 yards. In the previous game against the Packers, he replaced Wentz who was benched early, and went on to pass for 109 yards and one TD, thus earning his chance to start in the Saints game.
