850TheBuzz has a good interview with Russell Wilson that you will enjoy. (Link to interview) I never stop being impressed by this young man.
The latter part of the interview discusses Russell’s passion for baseball as well as football. However, there doesn’t seem to be any legitimate likelihood of Andrew Jones’ dream of Wilson giving up football (to make Carolina’s life easier) becoming a reality.
Speaking of specializing, the Wilmington Star News couldn’t have picked better timing than to run this article about the topic on their website last night. The article contains as much ‘meat’ on the topic as is possible, rising above the usual five or six obligatory paragraphs that we normally see on the topic.
“The Lord put a talent in my life,” Wilson said, “and I wanted to go someplace that would allow me to use it to its fullest extent.”
Unlike most of the other schools that recruited the Richmond, Va., native out of high school, State didn’t force him to choose between his two athletic loves – football and baseball.
That, as it turned out, made all the difference in the world to a multi-talented star with designs on playing both at the next level.
Two years later, Wilson is well on his way toward continuing a Wolfpack tradition of successful two-sport athletes.
