Carson Wentz’s girlfriend Melissa Uhrich looks like she’s super young in most of her pictures. That’s because she’s still very young and dating a big NFL draft prospect. The pair both hail from Bismarck, North Dakota and attended Century High School. The couple are both athletes. Melissa was an all-state runner in high school. She remains a strong runner even after having gone through not one but two torn ACL’s! Any time I hear about a torn ACL, a montage of initial sadness followed by focused physical rehabilitation pops into my head to the tune of Michael Sembello’s “Maniac.” Imagine having two of those montages in your life!
Melissa’s hobbies are the same as Carson’s, from what I can tell. They do the same stuff together: hunting, praying, and hiking. They have a handsome golden retriever together named Henley, and he tags along on their adventures sometimes. Living in North Dakota means you’ve got access to the great outdoors pretty much whenever you want. It also means football is life and fishing and shooting animals is part of the culture. I’ve also seen Carson Wentz’s girlfriend using power tools together in his family’s workshop, so I guess you can add that to the list of hobbies, though that’s almost always out of necessity.
Thanks to Melissa’s bio sheet from Concordia College in Minnesota, we have a very detailed list of personal attributes. She’s 5’10” and her favorite food is noodles. Her favorite movie is “Coach Carter” and her favorite television show is “Friends.” If she weren’t a runner, she said she’d like to be involved in volleyball, and that’s not a stretch because of her height. Her bucket list includes sky-diving (everyone says that) and she considers herself relatively talented with art. Carson Wentz’s girlfriend says she plans on being a nurse after she graduates. Now that Carson is a member of the Eagles, we wonder if that will still happen.
