How often can you say that a magic trick inspired you and blew your mind at the same time? With just a deck of cards, Philadelphia Eagles snapper Jon Dorenbos managed to wow the crowd with a tear-jerking magic trick about finding yourself during his final performance on Tuesday night’s finale of America’s Got Talent.

The NFL player not only won over the judges once again, he also managed to receive a hefty amount of praise from fellow members of the NFL including Aaron Rodgers, quarterback for the Green Bay Packers, and his teammate, Zach Ertz.

“@JonDorenbos has been an inspiration with his magic and his story,” Rodgers said. “Well done buddy! #respect”

Dorenbos has had a pretty incredible run on the show, with some of his acts including playing a guessing game with the judges in which he predicted drawings they made and snapping footballs at an electronic map of the U.S.

Watch the video of Dorenbos’ performance below, and tune in tonight as AGT crowns its winner at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
