Jake SilverSocial Media StaffSeptember 9, 2013

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson is one of the most promising young stars in the NFL, and he's only in year two. The former third-round pick dishes on how he carved his path after graduating high school in the latest issue of Men's Fitness, of which he is featured on the cover:

“I was offered a million dollars [by the Baltimore Orioles out of high school]. I turned it down, and I went to North Carolina State to play football and baseball, and I promised my dad I would graduate in three years, so I took 18 credits each semester.”
