Thanks to a rookie season where he completed 64% of his passes for 3,118 yards and 26 touchdowns Russell Wilson has quickly become one of the more popular names around the Seattle, Washington area. The third round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft helped the Seahawks secure a playoff birth with an 11-5 record during the regular season in a year that would probably have been good enough to win Rookie of the Year more often than not.

Pretty good throw, but not totally surprising from the former baseball player. Now, about that radar gun reading.
