Having graduated from college, Russell entered North Carolina State University, where he was supervised by the coach Tom O'Brien. The trainer insisted Wilson should play baseball, but he was interested in other sports activities too. His misunderstanding with the coach caused his transfer to Wisconsin-Madison University. He dreamed to become a professional football player, but his height (Russell is 5 ft 11) was not suitable for this kind of sports. Nevertheless the managers of Seattle Seahawks decided to give him a chance and chose Russell Wilson as their quarterback in 2012. They have never regretted about it as Russell Wilson led his team to a number of loud victories.
Currently the stellar athlete enjoys a solid salary. He spent a part of it to get the house of his dream and a great car.
