Much has changed in the world since Nick Foles was last at the Philadelphia Eagles. One thing that remains the same is that Foles is backed up and supported by the love of his life, Tori Moore. Foles and Moore’s relationship goes all the way back to when the pair were student athletes at the University of Arizona. Perhaps it was fate, as Foles flirted with Arizona State and Michigan State before transferring to become a wildcat. While Foles was a star on the football field, Moore was on the school’s volleyball team. Speaking to NJ.com in 2014, just after their wedding, Foles said Moore is “an athlete as well, so she knows how it goes. She pushes to make me better.”
Here’s what you need to know about her:
