Wilson didn’t throw for more than 300 yards until Seattle’s playoff loss to Atlanta, and, including the postseason, he had 10 games in which he threw for fewer than 200. Wilson was a revelation early mainly because he wasn’t a total disaster. He was a feel-good story most people outside of the Pacific Northwest didn’t even see coming this past fall. The question Wilson will face this season is how he’ll cope when defenses force him to win more games on his own talents. The benefit he has is a full offseason of working as the team’s top signal-caller after he spent last year’s training camp competing for the job.

Russell Wilson: Week 6 my Seahawks turning point

Students, Alumni, and fans will not Marshawn Lynch Berkeley Jersey soon forget the season that Wilson had here; the same way he wont forget the city that helped make his dream a reality. This weekend Wilson is back in town helping Madisons youth achieve their gridiron dreams through the Russell Wilson Passing Academy. A camp designed to teach inner-city youth proper football technique while instilling in them the value of hard work, dedication and discipline. Over this two and a half week period I will basically meet 1400 kids, Wilson told local media while his campers lunched. If I can change one of those kids lives, inspire just one of those kids, that makes a difference and it goes a long way. I think that is the biggest thing and thats the thing I try to focus on. Teaching them the fundamentals and the character aspect of things, and how to live and how to act.
