NC State's Russell Wilson, other NFL alums come home

The football season at NC State could not have ended worse, as the Wolfpack lost their final eight games to finish the season winless in ACC play and 3-9 overall under first-year head coach Dave Doeren.

Russell Wilson throws out first pitch for Rangers

ARLINGTON, Texas - After quarterbacking a team to a Super Bowl win, the pressure of throwing out the first pitch before a major league game was nothing to Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.

Russell Wilson stood before a crowd of reporters and answered questions with the poise and confidence many had come to expect.

Photo: Wisconsin Fans Put Up Billboard For Russell Wilson In Raleigh, Misspell “Russell”

Before becoming the starting quarterback of the Seattle Seahawks as a rookie, and leading the team to the Super Bowl this season, Russell Wilson had a standout college career at both North Carolina State and Wisconsin, where he transferred to play out his final year of eligibility.
