Top 10 Things You Didn’t Know About Russell Wilson! (NFL)


Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Carrington
Wilson was selected 75th overall in the 2012 NFL Draft.
EverythingTop10 is proud to present, “The Top 10 Things You Didn’t Know About Russell
Wilson!” #10. Wilson was born at The Christ Hospital
in Cincinnati, and he grew up in Richmond, Virginia. He is the son of Harrison Benjamin
Wilson III, a lawyer, and Tammy Wilson, a legal nurse consultant. He has an older brother,
Harrison IV, and a younger sister, Anna. He started playing football with his father and
brother at the age of four, and he played his first organized game for the Tuckahoe
Tomahawks youth football team in the sixth grade.
#9. His great-great-grandfather was a slave to a Confederate colonel and was freed after
the American Civil War. His maternal grandfather was noted painter A. B. Jackson. According
to genetic admixture analysis, Wilson is 62% African, 36% European, 1% West Asian, and
1% Central Asian. #8. Wilson’s father played football and
baseball at Dartmouth and was a wide receiver for the San Diego Chargers preseason squad
in 1980. His brother, Harry, played football and baseball at the University of Richmond,
and his sister Anna plays basketball for Stanford. His father died on June 9, 2010 at age 55
due to complications from diabetes. #7. Wilson attended Collegiate School, a preparatory
school in Richmond, Virginia. In addition to playing football, he was also a member
of the Collegiate School basketball and baseball teams. He also served as his senior class
president. He committed to North Carolina State University on July 23, 2006. He also
received a football scholarship offer from Duke University.
#6. After graduating from high school, he was selected by the Baltimore Orioles with
the fifth pick in the 41st round (1,222nd overall) of the 2007 MLB Draft. He instead
elected to attend NC State that fall. In a 2008 interview, he said, “I was leaning
towards [entering the draft], but a college education is something you’ll always have.
On June 8, 2010, he was drafted by the Colorado Rockies in the fourth round (140th pick overall)
of the 2010 MLB Draft. #5. Wilson redshirted during the 2007 season
at NC State. In May 2010, he graduated from NC State in three years with a BA in communication,
and took graduate-level business courses in the fall semester during the 2010 football
season. In January 2011, he announced that he would report to spring training with the
Colorado Rockies organization. On April 29, 2011, NC State head coach Tom O’Brien announced
that Wilson had been granted a release from his football scholarship with one year of
eligibility remaining. #4. On June 27, 2011, Wisconsin head coach
Bret Bielema announced that Wilson had committed to Wisconsin for the 2011 season. Wilson finished
the season with 33 passing touchdowns, which set the single-season record at Wisconsin
and was the second-most in Big Ten history behind Drew Brees during the 1998 season at
Purdue (39). On January 28, 2012, Wilson completed his college football career at the 2012 Senior
Bowl. #3. In February 2012, former NFL quarterback
and director of the IMG Madden Football Academy Chris Weinke said of Wilson, “If he was
6–5, he’d probably be the No. 1 pick in the draft.” On April 11, 2012, ESPN “Monday
Night Football” analyst Jon Gruden said, “The only issue with Russell Wilson is his
height. That might be the reason he’s not picked in the first couple rounds.”
#2. With the victory in Super Bowl 48, he became just the second black starting quarterback
to win a Super Bowl, joining Super Bowl 22 winner Doug Williams. In addition to this,
Wilson, at 5ʹ11ʺ tall, became the shortest quarterback to win a Super Bowl, shorter than
Len Dawson, Joe Theismann, and Drew Brees (all 6ʹ0ʺ).
#1. Wilson is married to American R&B singer Ciara. They began dating in early 2015 and
announced their engagement on March 11, 2016. They were married on July 6, 2016, at the
Peckforton Castle in Cheshire, England. Their daughter, Sienna Princess Wilson, was born
on April 28, 2017. They have two Great Danes, Prince and Naomi. He met his first wife, Ashton
Meem, while they were both high school students. They married in January 2012 and divorced
in April 2014. That’s all folks! Make sure you check out

    He went win anymore. Defense isn't even deep enough to give him the wins. We have no offense either. He can't do it alone and our starters are getting old.

    Russel Wilson will lead the Seahawks to a Superbowl in the 2019-2020 season against the la chargers & Philip Rivers . And a follow-up in 2020-21 against Andrew luck & the colts. Both wins… But the Seahawks will be the best team in the history of NFL, I fear Pete Carroll will be retiring in 2021 though. (Hope not) and I believe Russ & the Hawks will end up with 5 total wins
