What We Learned From Seattle Seahawks Quarterback Russell Wilson In The Player’s Tribune

The Seattle Seahawks quarterback is a former bully? When Russell Wilson’s voice came out in an ad last year encouraging fans to ask him anything, to learn all about him, who expected this? He was a face grinder as a kid, a slammer who put others on the wall, a slugger who knocked teeth out. Easy to say he would have been a handful on a sleepover with his friends, if he had any...

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. Doeren ended up signing a top-25 recruiting class a few months later but, like most rebuilding projects, it's going to take time. So it doesn't hurt to have influential alums like...

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. Wilson also happens to be a former minor league infielder whose baseball rights are still owned by the Texas Rangers. That's why Wilson was able to calmly zip a fastball into the glove...

NC State Fans Strike Back Against Wisconsin With Their Own Russell Wilson Billboard

It was just yesterday that we showed you a photo of a billboard in Raleigh, North Carolina that proclaimed Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson (despite his name being misspelled) to be “one of” Wisconsin’s own. Wilson, for those unaware, attended NC State for three years but finished up his collegiate career for the Badgers.  Thursday, we’re seeing another photo...

Wilson looking to be the Super Bowl QB star

The captain was a few minutes late, though no one seemed to mind. Russell Wilson is usually worth the wait, and no more than on this day, his final one speaking about the game before he actually plays The Game. Peyton Manning is supposed to be the star of this Super Bowl, but a minor league second baseman who refused to listen to those who said he was too small to play quarterback...

Unwavering confidence has spurred Wilson's journey to Super Bowl

Russell Wilson stood before a crowd of reporters and answered questions with the poise and confidence many had come to expect. He talked about overcoming the odds, about the effort and energy required to reach this point in his life and about never allowing a big stage to engulf him. And though the answers might have sounded cliché if delivered from someone else, they somehow sounded...

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. Naturally both programs claim him as their own, so this billboard that was recently put up in Raleigh...

Seahawks QB Russell Wilson becomes a super megastar this weekend

The first time I interviewed Russell Wilson I couldn’t believe that I was taller than him. Not by much, but enough that I doubted Russell Wilson would ever amount to anything once his college football career with the Wisconsin Badgers was over. Even when I covered my first Rose Bowl and I was first hand witness to Russell Wilson breaking the single season passer rating record in...

Rangers make Russell Wilson unique Rule 5 Draft pick

The odds of Russell Wilson actually suiting up for the Rangers are slim, actually probably none, but that didn't stop Texas from making some headlines Thursday by selecting former University of Wisconsin and current Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson in the Rule 5 Draft. Wilson played baseball and football at North Carolina State from 2008-10 and was drafted by Colorado...
