Russell Wilson


One of the National Football League's (NFL) top quarterbacks right now, Russell Wilson, was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, on November 29, 1988. He spent his formative years in Richmond, Virginia, where he played high school football before enrolling at North Carolina State University and the University of Wisconsin.


He started his NFL career as a member of the Seattle Seahawks in 2012, and he presently serves as the quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Wilson has guided the Seahawks to two Super Bowl appearances, winning one in 2013, and has been selected nine times to the Pro Bowl in his career to date. He excelled in football, basketball, and baseball while playing in college, garnering All-ACC and All-Big Ten honors. He was also a three-sport star in high school.


Wilson's past few seasons have seen him struggle quite a bit and it is this factor that has now led to him being released by the Denver Broncos franchise after just two years. Wilson's next destination has now taken him to the city of Pittsburgh where he will battle it out with Justin Fields for the starting role in the 2024 NFL season.
