Wilson Returns to Wisconsin for Passing Camp
A year after leaving Wisconsin and leading the charge for Seattle in the 'Fail Mary' game against the Packers, Russell Wilson was back in Wisconsin hosting his passing camp Saturday.
The camp is the brainchild of the Seahawks second year quarterback, who got the idea in his junior year of high school.
Wilson says he'll meet over 14 thousand kids over the course of the camp as it moves from the east coast up to Spokane, Washington.
Teaching more than x's and o's.
"If I can change one of those kids lives, inspire one of those kids, that makes the difference," Wilson said. "That's the biggest thing the thing I try to focus on. The character side of things, how to act and how to be discipline."
Wilson stressed how he keeps a detailed scheduled of his daily activities which has helped him keep calm admit a hectic rookie season. A method of organization he hopes to pass along to kids at his camp.
"I think that's what helps you be successful in life."
Wilson leads his Seahawks into Lambeau Field for a preseason match up August 23rd. It'll be the first time Wilson has ever been to Green Bay in his life.
Wilson led the Seahawks to the playoffs in his rookie year, despite criticism from multiple draft pundits about his skill and height.
"I don't think criticism is every silenced to be honest with you. Lebron James has won championships and still gets criticized and I've never done anything yet," Wilson said. "So when you think about it that way, there are a lot of things I have to accomplish and do. I'm never satisfied and I always used to say 'I always ignore the noise.'"
