About this product
- DescriptionFew took tice when the Seattle Seahawks selected Russell Wilson in the third round of the 2012 NFL Draft. Despite Wilson s accomplishments at the college level, few experts predicted success for the sub-6-foot signal caller. Two years later, Wilson and the Seahawks were Super Bowl champions. With Seattle s triumph in Super Bowl XLVIII, Wilson set the NFL record for most wins in a quarterback s first two seasons. In this commemorative edition, veteran Seattle sports writers Art Thiel and Steve Rudman trace the quarterback s ascent from North Carolina State to Wisconsin, with a detour into professional baseball, and through the Super Bowl XLVIII win. Featuring nearly 100 unique color photographs, Russell Wilson: Standing Tall captures the meteoric rise of one of the NFL s most surprising superstars.
