PHILADELPHIA -- Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz hired his former backup at North Dakota State to help lead his A01 Foundation.

Operating AO1 is a three-man job between Wentz, his brother Zach Wentz and Cole Davis. Davis’ job as director of operations carries a multitude of responsibilities with fundraising and organizing various events at the top of the list.

Davis graduated from NDSU last December and finished his career less than a month later with the Division I FCS national title win over James Madison.

The mission of the A01 Foundation, standing for Audience of One, is based on helping people through spirituality.

"Everything the organization stands for is what I would stand for as well," Davis said. "The fact one of my best friends is the president and founder is definitely appealing and I've gotten to be good friends with Zach the last couple of years."

The AO1 crew is returning to Fargo next week for a meet-and-greet fundraiser at Oxbow Country Club, essentially the same event as last summer's kickoff banquet.
