Why Own A Russell Wilson Jersey?
Russell Wilson was drafted by the Seattle Seahawks in the 3rd round of the 2012 NFL Draft as the 75th overall pick. In his rookie season he lead the Seattle Seahawks to a 11-5 record and to the divisional round of the NFL playoffs and was voted the Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Year. Russell Wilson also tied Peyton Manning's record for most touchdowns thrown by a rookie quarterback. He accomplished all of this plus much more in just his rookie season!
Before Russell Wilson took his talents to North Carolina State, he lead his High School football team to three consecutive state titles, from 2004 to 2006. He was the RTD (Richmond Times Dispatch) Player of the Year in 2005 and 2006 for football and to cap it off he was named to First Team all-state for three consecutive years. To say he dominated at the high school ranks is an understatement.
Russell Wilson is one of the NFL's best role models. You only need to listen to one interview to realize this. He is passionate about competing everyday to be the very best you can be. This was the case not only when he stormed into Seattle and won the starting quarterback job as a rookie but also when he transferred to Wisconsin (from North Carolina State) his senior year in college and won over his teammates by them selecting him to be a team captain.
When you put a jersey on your back you are letting the world know whom you represent. You want this player to not only be a stud on the field but a great role model. A great quote by Russell is, "Always persevere, always have great perspective, and always have great purpose in your life."Buying a Russell Wilson jersey is doing just that. He's a great NFL football player and role model on and off the field. Not to mention he's young and will be a Seattle Seahawk for years to come!
