Russell Wilson’s Way On Top

Russell Wilson got used to sports in his early years mostly due to his father, a former NFL player, who left sports to become a lawyer. In addition Russell had an older brother, with whom they played both, football and basketball.

Wilson was incredibly talented as an athlete, and soon he became a college sports star. During his final year at Richmond's Collegiate, Russell tried his hand as a quarterback of school team, and was titled as the player of the year. He practiced baseball, tennis, football etc.

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.
