I don’t normally blog about sports, but I wanted to share some thoughts about my favorite professional athlete.
Its no secret that I am a big fan of Russell Wilson. I enjoyed watching him for his one year at the University of Wisconsin and I was so happy to see him get the chance to play in the NFL. I always thought he would be good, but I never dreamed he would prove himself to be the BEST of the young NFL quarterbacks! In addition to having great stats, he is a passionate follower of Jesus and does great work with the Seattle Children’s Hospital. He’s proven himself as a real leader and a hard worker. Here are some of his most impressive stats:
His 24 wins are the MOST EVER in NFL history for a QB in their first two seasons!
After throwing 52 touchdown passes in his first two seasons, he is tied with the great Peyton Manning for the second most TD passes in a quarterback’s first two seasons! (Dan Marino holds the record with 68)
Here’s how he stacks up against some of the other young QBs in the NFL:
I’m excited to see what the future holds for Russell Wilson!
