VIDEO: Russell Wilson High School Football Highlights From 2006 Are an Impressive Throwback
Find yourself missing football while the sports world is on hold? Seattle Seahawks fans can fill the void with some impressive throwback footage of franchise quarterback Russell Wilson from his days at Collegiate School in Richmond, Virginia, back in 2006.
Russell Wilson High School Highlights
Wilson put up some seriously impressive numbers in his senior season, throwing for 4,009 yards and 34 touchdowns while rushing for 1,132 yards and 18 touchdowns. He won his conference's Player of the Year award, leading his team to the conference championship. He also played both basketball and baseball at Collegiate School.
His NCAA career got off to a strong start after redshirting his freshman year, as he threw for at least 3,000 yards and 28 touchdowns in his sophomore and junior seasons. he then went on to have one of the best seasons ever for a Wisconsin quarterback, completing 72.8 percent of his passes for 3,175 yards and 33 touchdowns as a senior. Despite that, he fell to the third round of the 2012 NFL Draft.
The Seattle Seahawks got an obvious steal with that pick, however. Wilson has never thrown for fewer than 3,000 yards in any of his eight NFL seasons, and he's already the franchise leader in passing yards (29,734) and touchdowns (227), sitting only fourth in interceptions (68), while the third-most mark is 128. Under contract until 2024, Wilson is going to keep the Seahawks in the Super Bowl conversation for the foreseeable future.
