Russell Wilson Autograph Signing 7/14 @ 4pm!
We are so excited to welcome a Richmond sports star back to his hometown - NFL quarterback Russell Wilson of the Seattle Seahawks!
He will be here with us at Disco Sports on Saturday, July 14th from 4pm - 6pm signing autographs. If his football career so far has been any indication, he'll keep getting better!
We've known Russell Wilson was headed for great things for years. A Richmond native, he made a big splash in high school playing baseball and football for Collegiate. He was named to all-district, all-state, and all-region teams, and twice the Richmond-Times Dispatch Player of the Year. He lead the Cougars to a state championship, with his performance in the championship earning him a story in Sports Illustrated.
In college Russell continued to excel, quarterbacking the N.C. State Wolfpack to a bowl victory in 2010. After transferring to the University of Wisconsin -Madison, he had a spectacular year in which he scored 33 touchdowns and led the Badgers to a Big-10 Championship - in which he was named the Grange-Griffin MVP.
His exciting career continues as he was drafted 75th overall in the NFL Draft by the Seahawks.
Come meet him, get an autograph, and show him how proud Richmond is of him before he heads back to Seattle!
